Maynard Dixon’s New Mexico Centennial

It was September 1918, and the Santa Fe Museum of Fine Art exhibited a handful of paintings by Maynard Dixon (1875-1947), who was by then well-known for his masterly treatment of Western landscapes, animals, and people. Now, a hundred years later, the work of this seminal American artist will once again be shown in Santa Fe.
