Maynard Dixon in Arizona
The first Modernist in the West, Maynard Dixon traded his San Francisco illustration job for a career capturing the isolated beauty and native peoples of Arizona. From his first summer (!!) visit in 1900 to his death at his Tucson home in 1946, Dixon created a new way to see the deserts and Indian reservations throughout the state. Married to famed photographer Dorothea Lange, he and his wife saw the West not as a nostalgic place for cowboy lore, but as a land of raw beauty.
