Grand BW Canyon Photo from Family Archives

Grand Canyon National Park of Arizona. This photo was taken during one of Dawson-Watson’s trips west to visit the Grand Canyon and Hollywood.
(Dawson Dawson-Watson family archives)

From an article in the March, 5 1928 El Paso Herald, Dawson-Watson was quoted, “The Grand Canyon has its mystery,” the artist said. “Unless the painter captures it and puts it into his work he does not portray the real spirit of the chasm.”
