MAYNARD DIXON MUSEUM

The Tucson Maynard Dixon Museum is permanent exhibition of the lifework of Maynard Dixon, including original oils, watercolors, drawings and poetry.

 

 

The Tucson Maynard Dixon Museum contains Dixon's easel, along with a wide collection of original photographs. Over 75 books illustrated by Maynard Dixon, letters and ephemera are on display. 

 

    

     

Shortly after World War I, Maynard Dixon began to entertain himself by painting a body of work that was unlike anything he had done before. They can mostly be described as being surreal, whimsical, bizarre, and sardonic.  He signed these works "Nvorczk" a pen name he invented to probably satirize some of the art that was popular at that time.  These works are ex-collection Edith Hamlin and have been authenticated by Edith Hamlin and John Dixon. The Tucson Maynard Dixon Museum has the only exhibition of Nvorczk paintings on display to the public.
