16.125 x 13.375 framed. The piece is framed so you can see both back and front. This Mount Tamalpais image is highly desirable, as it is an early rendering of San Francisco mountain in Marin County. This drawing was done while Dixon was going to art school, and has one of the earliest, and possibly the earliest known self-portrait of Dixon. A drawing from this time frame is rare, as many of these were lost in Dixons studio fire during the great earthquake of 1906. Initialed L. M. D. and dated 1893. Graphite on one side. Pen and ink on the other side. 7.75 x 4.75 each side. Dixon wrote "Caroline M. Edson from hesz trooli ME, Ahtis. Quick sketch of Redwoods. Tamalpais, Marin Co. (In this style)" Dixon sometimes purposely misspelled words, so that one could imagine the spoken accent when reading these words. He was an accomplished poet. Hesz trooli, ME, Ahtis means his truly, me, artist.
