From the estate of the artist.
These are three excellent examples of Dozier's work from various periods of his career. A pillar of Lone Star Regionalism, Dozier's 1930s work is extremely rare. Houses is a special opportunity to acquire one of his regionalist works. By the 1950s, he settled into a tectonic modernist style to which he remained true for the rest of his career. Southwest Texas Landscape and Black, White, and Orange are strong examples of his later style.
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.
