[Street Scene by Night.]
Scarce lithograph on laid paper, image 315 x 250mm.
A night view of a busy building where the viewer sees all the activity in the lighted rooms above the commercial premises below. Two women walking along the poorly illuminated pavement seem exagerated in size compared to the hairdresser's window the pass. The artist appears not to have made many prints but was known as a painter, printmaker and teacher. Baumann was particularly noted for her etchings, engravings and lithographs and lived in London where she studied at St Martin's School of Art and the Royal College of Arts. Her work is represented in the collection of the Museum of London.
