poster of Earth KnowerPhil Carter
Are posters of Maynard Dixon of any value? I have the Earth Knower, it has his name across the top in large letters. It is signed and has 1931-32-35 and tiny writting below this that I can't make out.Found it in an antique store. Thanks, Phil Carter
Maynard DixonDylan Rivis
From what I can gather Maynard Dixon, son of Harry St John Dixon, Confederate Cavalry hero erstwhile CA lawyer/rancher) also worked on the decorative metalwork for El Alisal in Los Angles in 1898..which is perhaps where (his son?) Harry (St John) Dixon ( apprenticeded with Van Erp)became the famous coppersmith that he did.
Maynard Dixon sketch on RoadshowBob
There was, about four years ago, an appraisal on the Antiques Roadshow of a Maynard Dixon pencil/graphite sketch. There have been several on the Roadshow, but this one in particular had a penciled border around the drawing, underneath Dixon had dated the drawing, and had also written comments about the atmosphere with ideas for colors of the possible future painting. The other sketches that have been on the Roadshow didn't have the personal notes written in underneath the sketch.
If anyone remembers/recorded that episode of the Roadshow, I would surely appreciate a jpeg (if you can manage it) of that sketch, and the name/auction house of the appraiser. Thanks
