Of Maynard Dixon, Thomas McGuane said, "To me, no painter has ever quite understood the light, the distances, the aboriginal ghostliness of the American West as well as Maynard Dixon. The great mood of his work is solitude, the effect of the land and space on people. While his work stands perfectly well on its claims to beauty, it offers a spiritual view of the West indispensable to anyone who would understand it."

L. Maynard Dixon
Maynard Dixon was a major figure in the art of the American West. Unlike earlier generations of painters who found inspiration in the mountains that compose the crest of eastern California, Dixon often painted desert expanses in Nevada and Arizona.
