Additional Details

The Clayburghs were close friends of Maynard Dixon and his wife, photographer Dorothea Lange. Their inscription, originally written on the board that backed this particularly fine cloud study, is preserved on the verso at present. Accompanying the painting are copies of correspondence between Dixon and the Clayburghs, including a Christmas, 1934 note thanking Babette for helping Dixon name his monumental work, Earth Knower.
