The original Dixon collection is devoted to French and American Impressionists, Post-Impressionists and related schools.
The museum has continued to build on Margaret and Hugo Dixon's interest in Impressionism, acquiring works by the leaders of the movement -Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Pissarro - as well as excellent paintings by their contemporaries. Other artists represented in the collection of The Dixon Gallery and Gardens include: Bonnard, Cassatt, Chagall, Daumier, Fantin-Latour, Gauguin, Matisse, Morisot, Munch, Rodin, Signac, and Sisley.
In 1993, The Dixon acquired 58 works of art by Jean- Louis Forain, expanding the Dixon's Impressionist collection and establishing the Dixon as a major international repostiory of Forain's work.
Anchoring the Dixon's decorative arts holdings is the Stout Collection of 18th century German porcelain. A gift of the late Warda Stevens Stout, this collection of nearly 600 pieces of tableware and figures is one of the finest of its kind in the world. Highlights include a remarkable survey of Meissen porcelain and an extensive assemblage of Hochst table sculptures.
The Dixon's decorative arts collection also includes the Adler Pewter Collection, French and English porcelain, and period furniture.
The Dixon is the legacy of the late Margaret and Hugo Dixon, who left their home, gardens, and art collection for the enrichment and enjoyment of Memphis residents and visitors. Today, the gallery complex includes the original Dixon residence as well as two gallery expansions.
