Storyline

MAYNARD DIXON: Art and Spirit is a feature length documentary that profiles the breathtaking art and complex life of artist, Maynard Dixon (1875-1946). The desert was Dixon's sanctuary, a timeless place where he could forget the hurried pace of his life in San Francisco. He would often leave his wife and children, his paying work in the city, and his friends in the bohemian art scene for months of solitary searching in the American West. Under the desert stars, Dixon wrote poetry. Under the desert sun, Dixon painted, sketched and drew. His travels took him to the camps and reservations of the Hopi and Navajo, where he was welcomed with reverence for his talent with pencil, crayon and paint. He lived with the Native Americans and his art became a language between two cultures. Written by Jayne McKay,Producer/Director

Excellent documentary
2 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe that more people don't know about Maynard Dixon. He was a genius western artist and married to the more famous Dorothea Lange. Yet Dixon's work—as shown in this lush documentary—demonstrates that he belongs in the same rank as Remington and Russell. Diane Keaton, who narrates the film, is supposed to be a big Dixon collector as are other celebs like Jack Nicholsen and Steve Martin. Dixon's paintings sell for over a million dollars at auction. You'd think he would be a household word. The documentary vividly portrays both the fascinating man behind the art and gives keen insight into the art itself. I swear that after seeing so much of his amazing landscapes, I see the western skies quite differently!
