In 1931, Fort Worth native Dickson Reeder went to New York to study portraiture with Wayman Adams. He moved to Europe in 1936 and eventually settled in Paris, where he met his future wife and fellow artist, Flora Blanc. Flora introduced him to the renowned printmaker, William Stanley Hayter, and Dickson began studying at his Atelier 17. In 1940, the couple settled in Fort Worth, where they quickly became two of the central figures in a group of mid-century modernists known as the Fort Worth Circle. Dickson's entry into the 1941 Local show, The Shannon Children, quickly established him as one of the most avant-garde and popular portraitists in Fort Worth during this period. In 1946, Dickson and Flora opened the Reeder School of Theater and Design for Children, which instilled a love of the arts in several generations of Fort Worth's young people.
Works by Dickson Reeder, like the modernist gem, Frieze II, were included in multiple group and solo exhibitions in Texas, but he also
showed at the Weyhe Gallery in New York, and was included in an exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum, New York in 1942. Standing
Nude and Frieze II show the range and erudition of his painting. He was always experimenting with new styles and subjects..
