Biography   Maria Dixon


Little is known about Maria Dixon whose delicate quality of figure paintings is notable. An 1886 catalog of the National Academy of Design indicates she studied at the Art Students League with Charles Yardley Turner. From 1883 to 1896, she exhibited yearly with the Academy.

In 1895, she exhibited at the Cotton States Exposition in Atlanta, and beginning 1880, was showing at the Brooklyn Art Association. She signed her paintings M.R. Dixon because of the discrimination that existed against women artists during her painting career. Domesticity was one of the reoccurring themes of her paintings, especially mothers assisting children.
