Maynard Dixon, Forgotten Man, 1934, Oil on Canvas, 40 x 50 1/8, Herald R Clark Memorial Collection.

During the 1930s, Maynard Dixon turned his attention to the economic, social, and political upheavals of the Great Depression. Although he was a well-known painter of America’s Southwestern landscape and native peoples, he began to create images of his downtrodden and despairing countrymen, including those near his San Francisco studio. These paintings are among the most powerful images of this turbulent period in American history.

Along with the Forgotten Man, two other works are featured, Free Speech and Keep Moving.
