Baumann The Processional Desert Chorale
Gustave Baumann lived and worked in Santa Fe for the latter part of his long and productive career. He was fascinated with New Mexico and regional Native American traditions and incorporated many scenes based on these interests in his prints.
This poster for The Desert Choral's 1992 season depicts a procession of local girls celebrating their First Communion. Dressed in white frocks with white floral wreaths or veils, the girls are accompanied by nuns in black habits as they pass beneath a large flowering apple tree.
