John T. Axton III

American Artist (1922 – 2009)

Abstract Art

His work can be divided into two styles, abstract expressionist, from the early nineteen fifties until the mid seventies and trompe l’oeil which extended until the end of his life. His ability to make the transition from abstract to realism in such a clear manner is a quality rarely found.

Still-life Paintings

American Indian paintings and Western cowboys scenes are commonly collected in the Midwest states like Taxes, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada. The second wave painters of this type of genre and artwork are painted by artists who are feeding the collectors on the concept of romancing “the good old west “. by painting pictures and images of one being in the fresh and open space of the old America with the fast land of the wild West. Disconnected away from a century of industrial civilization.
John Axton is one of few artists who painted still-life of objects that display American Indians artifacts. He used his photo-realism style in documenting the daily objects which were used in their life. This album of paintings is from the Museum Archive.
