Maynard Dixon (1875-1946)

Maynard Dixon was born on a ranch near Fresno, California in 1875. A sickly child, Dixon spent much of his time sketching scenes near the family home. In 1893 the Dixon family moved to the San Francisco area where Dixon tried studying at the Mark Hopkins Institute. Finding formal study unpalatable, Dixon quickly left the school for work as an illustrator, a job at which he earned great acclaim. Throughout his adult life Dixon made regular painting excursions in the Southwest and his studio was decorated with Native American crafts. Dixon is best remembered for his works from these trips as well as his strong linear WPA era paintings including the very famous “Scab.” In 1938, Dixon’s health forced his move to the drier climate of Tucson, where he died in 1946.
