During the early part of his career Dixon made illustrations, but by the 1920s he was able to shift to painting landscapes and people in the general area of New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and Arizona.
His style was representational, though by the 1920s he followed the fashion of simplification of forms to a slight degree.
An early illustration.
He was a competent illustrator, though the style of this example is not as distinctive as that of Frederic Remington or N.C. Wyeth.
Perhaps influenced by Wyeth, Dixon used Impressionist elements in this work.
This is suggestive of Remington's night scenes.
Here Dixon adds a touch of Modernist simplification, something that often works well when painting Southwestern scenes.
A landscape from about the same time as the two images above.
Possibly a view of the Pueblo near Taos, New Mexico.
This is almost sculptural.
Perhaps influenced by Lange, Dixon painted some Depression-era political works.
This might be one of his last paintings -- not very different from what he was doing 25 years earlier.
