    PROPERTY FROM A DISTINGUISHED COLLECTION OF EARLY TEXAS ART


    PROVENANCE:
    David Dike Fine Art, Dallas;
    Acquired by the present owner from the above.

    A pillar of Lone Star Regionalism, Otis Dozier was known for the tectonic modernist style exemplified by Bird in the Sky, 1952. Born in Forney, Texas, Dozier studied under Vivian Aunspaugh, at the Art Institute of Dallas with Olin Travis and Thomas Stell, and at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center with Boardman Robinson. In 1932, he helped found the Dallas Artists League. He showed in the Dallas Allied Arts exhibitions and at the Texas Centennial Exposition. In the 1950s, Dozier moved away from his Regionalist beginnings to a semi-abstract style based on observation of natural landforms across the American West.
