Framing a Maynard Dixon Sketch

Here’s a 1901 sketch by the famed Western painter Maynard Dixon (1875-1946), titled “Three Bucking Broncos”. We framed it in walnut with a black wash, in a simple profile with restrained but carefully sympathetic corner carving pattern to honor it. (This piece can also be found on our new catalog page, Mitered Frames—Special Corners.) With Dixon’s thunderbird insignia gracing the bottom rail, the frame also honors the artist.

This very special drawing is available from California Historical Design, here.

Another Dixon we framed in a similarly carved manner can be found in the Portfolio, here, and is available from Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson, here.

One thought on “Framing a Maynard Dixon Sketch

  1. Just saw this and love how you incorporated Dixon’s “chop” in the carving. Love the black wash on the walnut and perfect for a pencil drawing.
