Maynard Dixon’s multiple artistic abilities and unique personality combined to create an original American vision and voice. In his Stetson hat and Texas boots, he affected the look and mannerisms of a lanky cowboy, one who cut a distinctive figure on the streets of San Francisco. Like a trolley wreck, passersby couldn’t help but notice the great painter of the West. Twenty-two painting excursions including a thousand-mile horseback trip in 1901 allowed Dixon’s keen artistic eye to capture the isolated but rapidly evolving Western territories and their occupants over a forty-year span.
