Oil on masonite

Born in Forney, Texas, Otis 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. Dozier also made lithographs and was a member of the Lone Star Printmakers. He became Robinson's assistant and traveled to Colorado Springs annually until 1945. By the 1960s, Dozier had moved away from his Regionalist beginnings to a semi-abstract style based on observation of natural landforms across the American West. The Davis Mountains, Big Bend, and the Terlingua area became favorite spots in which he "set" his paintings by the late 1950s and through the 1970s.
Light frame wear along left and bottom extreme edges; spots of minor dry craquelure with associated fleck of paint loss in large black shape at left; not examined under UV light.
