Profusely illustrated with numerous new images of paintings and other artwork, The Art of Maynard Dixon traces the emergence of Dixon as a transitional figure in the art history of America. Included are poems, letters, and essays written by Dixon that support his responses to the dynamic changes in American art from the early decades of the twentieth century.


From 1900 until his death in 1946, Maynard Dixon ventured into the physical and cultural landscapes of the American West, drawing, painting, and writing poetry and letters in what ultimately became a quest to uncover the regions spirit. An active, outspoken, and sometimes cantankerous participant in America and the Wests cultural life, he would develop the most enduring themes in his art by the 1920s: the haunting western landscape, the religious mysticism of the Native American, and (briefly, during the Great Depression) images of dislocated people trampled by economic and social forces.
