“The California-born [Maynard] Dixon (1875-1946) first traveled to Arizona in 1900 to experience what he believed was a vanishing West.  Amid the mesas, canyons, and desertlands of the region he found visual inspiration and a spiritual solace that would shape both his painting and his life.  His response to Arizona’s natural and cultural landscapes would fuel the evolution of a powerful personal style; the place would ultimately become both an aesthetic and personal refuge.” 

“The renowned artist Maynard Dixon once pronounced ‘Arizona’ ‘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.’    -From the slip cover
