Maynard Dixon: To The Desert Again
One hundred years ago, a solitary figure roamed the desert Southwest seeking to capture the endless sky and towering mesas in paint and poetry. His vision of the West was matchless. Maynard Dixon survived the destruction of San Francisco by earthquake and fire, the Great Depression, and the civilizing of the West. He spent over two decades sketching it for popular books and magazine, and then decades more on a quest to find and portray it: the "real" West - the vast space, intense silence, and profound spirit of the land and its people. Discover the man and his art.
