Navajo in Chief’s Robes, 1942

Pen and ink on paper
Paper: 9.75” x 4”
Frame: 18” x 12”

Signed Lower Left: MD / 1942

From the personal collection of Maynard Dixon that was left to his wife Edith Hamlin Dixon. Done in Tucson, Arizona in 1942, this full figure of a Navajo man stands in sharp isolation against a neutral background. There is a sense of distance between the figure and the viewer as the entirety of his body, a portion of his face, and his head are covered. This is a masterpiece of Dixon’s artistry.
