Maynard Dixon

Born in Fresno, California in the San Joaquin Valley, Maynard Dixon, originally named Henry St. John Dixon, became a noted illustrator, landscape, and mural painter of the early 20th-century American West, especially the desert, Indians, early settlers, and cowboys.

Several phases of Dixon's career show him to be an early modernist painter who incorporated Post-Impressionism and Cubist-Realism into his landscapes and skyscapes.  Examples of strong modernist influences in his paintings are "Cloud World" of 1925 and "Study in Cubist Realism", 1925.  His career can be divided into several periods: 1890-1905, Self taught; 1905-1915, Illustrator; 1915-1921, Post Impressionist; 1921-1930, Cubist Realist; and 1930-1946 Simple Mod  ...  Displaying 750 of 40107 characters.
