Drawn to the desert for inspiration, Perceval made frequent trips to Arizona, becoming a scholar in the traditions of the Hopi and Navajo Indians. Stylistically similar to Maynard Dixon, Perceval's Southwest works drew upon his life's experiences. In the 1950's Perceval lived with the Hopi Tribe in Arizona. His last years were spent in Santa Barbara, California, where he died in 1979.
