An original grisaille gouache painting by renowned artist Maynard Dixon completed for use as an illustration plate for the 1910 western novel "The Red-Blooded Heroes of the Frontier" by Edgar Beecher Bronson.

Between 1909 and 1913, Dixon illustrated numerous pieces for magazines, among them stories by O. Henry, Stewart Edward White, and Edgar Beecher Bronson.  During this time, he also created striking illustrations for numerous western fiction and nonfiction books, including Dane Coolidge's "Hidden Water" and "The Texican", Joseph Mills Hanson's "Frontier Ballads", Mary K. Maule's "The Little Knight of the 'X Bar B'," Robert SErvice's "The Trail of Ninety-Eight," and Kate Boyles' "The Homesteaders" and "The Spirit Trail."  But of all the books Dixon illustrated, it would be Clarence E. Mulford's "Hopalong Cassidy" series that brought him the most fame.

Dimensions: 22 x 15 in.
