A Place of Refuge: Maynard Dixon's Arizona
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungWestern painter Maynard Dixon once pronounced "Arizona" "the magic name of a land bright and mysterious, of sun and sand, of tragedy and stark endeavor." "So long had I dreamed of it," he professed, "that when I came there it was not strange to me. Its sun was my sun; its ground was my ground." The California-born Dixon (1875-1946) first traveled to Arizona in 1900 to absorb what he believed was a vanishing West. Dixon found Arizona a visually inspiring and spiritual place that shaped the course of his paintings and ultimately defined him. "A Place of Refuge: Maynard Dixon's Arizona" is the first exhibition to focus solely on the renowned painter's depictions of Arizona subjects.
