Maynard Dixon, Miss Lange Have Studio Wedding Art circles were preparing today to render a welcome and congratulations to Maynard Dixon, noted portrayer of Western subjects, and Dorothea Lange, also a prominent member of San Francisco's artist colony, when they return from their honeymoon next Saturday. The couple were quietly married last Sunday evening in the studio of the bride at the Print Rooms, 540 Sutter Street by Rev. Henry Frank of the People's Liberal Chuch. π Miss Lange was attended by Miss Florence Ahlstrom, while Roi Partridge, the artist, served Dixon. WEDDING AT STUDIO The ceremony was performed before the large brick fireplace in the studio, which opens upon a little Spanish court. The only decorations were a few branches of the flowering peach and hazel, which gave a charming color note, while the soft glow of candles added to the artistic effect. The prominence of the bridge and groom in art circles throughout the United States makes the marriage one of unusual interest. Miss Lange, who came here from New York two years ago, is the best known exponent of portrait photography on the coast; while Maynard Dixon is numbered among the big painters of the country and enjoys an international reputation. Dixon belongs to the Southwest , and his wonderful desert canvases are known in every prominent gallery in America, while many hang in the art museums of Europe. BRIDE KEEPS IDENTITY Mr. and Mrs. Dixon left Monday evening for a brief honeymoon, and after Saturday will be at home at "The ___(illegible)tie House on the Hill" as their friends have named the home at 1080 Broadway on Russian Hill, which they have been building. It is said to carry off (?) all the artistic ideals of these two well known artists. Mrs. Dixon will continue her work in her studio at the Print Rooms under the name of Miss Lange, while Dixon will work at his downtown studio.
