Maynard Dixon started drawing as a very early boy and even sent original work to the famous illustrator Frederick Remmington who encouraged the fifteen year old Dixon to continue his work and to "draw, draw, draw". Maynard Dixon took this to heart and over the next half century did just that.

There are probably over a thousand drawings that are still in existence and many more that we will never know about. Maynard Dixon used his drawing abilities as painters today use a camera. Maynard Dixon would sketch out a quick study that might end up being an important painting. Some of Dixon's best known images started out as a small three by three inch graphite drawing.

Maynard Dixon drawings today can be purchased for as little as a thousand dollars to in excess of one hundred thousand. It is important when purchasing any work of art, but especially drawings, to make sure that a letter of authenticity accompany's the piece. It is best to purchase Maynard Dixon drawings from one of the recognized authorities as many of these are unsigned.
