Maynard Dixon

Artist Bio

By 1940, Maynard Dixon was living in Tucson. His asthma and emphysema were worsening and the air in Southern Arizona acted as a tonic. He still traveled, on occasion with his wife Edith, through Arizona and Southern Utah, in search of interesting subject matter. Dixon’s late style is spare; the Deco softness and shadings of the 1930‘s have given way to compositions of positive and negative shapes that carve areas of light and shadow.
