Gustave Baumann's shed is declared historic

The shed belonging to printmaker and woodcut expert Gustave Baumann has been granted protected historic status, reports The Santa Fe New Mexican. Pictured above is Baumann’s own woodcut of his home, studio and backyard shed which was made in 1927 as a greeting card. Here's what the SFNM say:
The small, mud-plastered, dirt-floor shed was built in 1927 "in a vernacular manner" with Baumann's "artistic touches in the details of the door, trim, paint colors in the exterior character," according the city Historic Preservation Office. "A non-historic ProPanel roof covers the original roof." Elaine Bergman, executive director of the Historic Santa Fe Foundation, which owns the property, said Baumann used the shed to store window screens and storm windows, as well as other materials and tools.
