About this artwork

A sense of nostalgia for a simpler time can be found in The Print Shop. Here, Baumann portrayed Alonzo Allison, editor and publisher of the Brown County Democrat, and his sons setting type and using an old-fashioned Franklin press. This work, along with 12 others from In the Hills o’ Brown portfolio, was printed on the letterpress depicted. The portfolio was shown in group exhibitions in 1911 and was generously reviewed by critics in Indianapolis and Chicago.
