Notes

Provenance: W. Herbert Allen, California Thatcher School, Ojai, CA Private collection, California, 1980 Private collection by descent, Las Vegas, NV Sotheby’s, New York, NY, 2011 Private collection, Nevada Painted in 1941, Maynard Dixon’s painting Peaceful Morning shows a common theme that runs through many of his landscapes of the era—cottonwood trees. “Like cloud formations, cottonwoods are a theme for Dixon from the mid-’30s on—a prominent force in his Tucson, Arizona, and Mt. Carmel, Utah, paintings,” writes Mark Sublette in Maynard Dixon’s American West. Drawings and oil sketches of the period, as well as finished paintings, show Dixon frequently painted cottonwoods, with their golden-yellow leaves and abundance along creek beds in desert valleys. Dixon spent the first half of 1941 in Tucson, where he painted cacti and the Santa Catalina Mountains, and for the second half, he and wife Edith Hamlin journeyed north to their summer home in Mt. Carmel, Utah. The year would also bring about Dixon’s final public mural at California’s Canoga Park Post Office, which is still on view there today.
