German artist Gustave Baumann (b.1881) immigrated to the United States in 1891 and lived in Chicago. After his father left in 1896, he took on the responsibility of caring for his family. He sold his drawings to make money, and eventually he became an apprentice at the Franklin Engraving Company. Artist Gustave Baumann did all of his own carving, ink mixtures, printing, and careful selection of handmade paper to print on.
