Press Release - November 8, 2011
W.R. Leigh’s Home, Sweet Home (1932) sets record with $1.195 million price in Art of the American West at Heritage Auctions

Tom Lovell, Maynard Dixon, Birgér Sandzen all show ever-strengthening Western Art category, Nov. 5 in Dallas

DALLAS, TX – W.R. Leigh’s Home, Sweet Home soared to nearly double its pre-auction estimate selling for $1.195 million and setting a new world record price for the artist in Heritage Auctions’ impressive $2.27 million Art of the American West Signature® Auction, Saturday, Nov. 5. The painting came to auction from The Property of Philip Jonsson, son of former Dallas Mayor and Texas Instruments Co-Founder Eric Jonsson.

Overall, the auction saw 262 bidders vying for just 74 total lots, translating into a 95% sell-through by value. All prices include 19.5% Buyer’s Premium.

“We knew this was an exceptional and historically important painting from the start,” said Kirsty Buchanan, Consignment Director for Western Art at Heritage. “Collectors obviously thought so, too, pushing it to a new record price for one of Leigh’s works. It led what proved to be a strong auction; we’re all thrilled with the response.”

“It’s just a masterfully depicted tableau,” said Ed Beardsley, Vice President of Heritage Auctions. “It’s saturated with the colors and tones of the western landscape and it tells a compelling story of camaraderie on the plains.”

Another W.R. Leigh masterwork, Renegade at Bat, 1941 – also from The Property of Philip Jonsson – was the subject of much collector buzz and bidding in the auction before finishing the day at $388,375, further burnishing the great artist’s reputation. Renegade at Bay is a superbly executed scene of a horse whose calm demeanor is an effective contrast to the tension displayed by the cowboy who is awaiting imminent danger just around the bend.

Tom Lovell is always a perennial favorite in both Heritage Western Art and Illustration Art auctions, and his The Raven Followers, 1975, true to form, proved to be a favorite with collectors in this auction, as the painting of two American Indian warriors scouting buffalo from a sweeping vista realized $131,450. Maynard Dixon proved to be another artist who collector’s continue to hotly seek, as his oil Calico Hills (Virgin Valley, Nevada; No.350), 1927, more than tripled its $30,000+ pre-auction estimate to soar to $95,600.

The work of Birgér Sandzen continues to sell well at auction, as a pair of his oil paintings enticed collectors. His Early Fall, Smoky Hill River (Kansas), 1940 realized $71,700, while his Cottonwood Trees and Pond, 1922 performed admirably by bringing $47,800 exceeding the high estimate.

From his home tucked into the foothills of the Sandia Mountains near Albuquerque, Hurley could observe and study the drama of anapproaching thunderstorm, the nuances that a fading evening light created on the darkening landscape, or the bright colors of distant mountains lit by thenoonday sun. He turned those daily observations into panoramic paintings that deftly captured the natural beauty of the world around him. Hurley wasa true Renaissance man; a graduate of West Point, he was a pilot, engineer, and successful attorney before taking up art as a full time pursuit. As a youngartist, he sharpened his eye for detail and his general technique under the tutelage of Santa Fe artist Theodore Van Soelen.In Sunlight on Falling Rain, Hurley demonstrates his ability to infuse the New Mexican landscape with a sense of high drama while at the same timecapturing the beauty and grandeur of nature. He fills the foreground with highly realistic details of rock and foliage and skillfully leads the viewer’seye toward the storm on the horizon. The bright white sunlight shining through the storm serves as a counterpoint to the blues, grays, and pinks of thethunderhead which anchors the entire frame of the painting. Hurley’s ability to convey the enormous power of a thunderstorm and the subtle colorationsof the landscape below in a single scene sets him apart as one of the most accomplished painters of the modern era.Estimate: $15,000-$20,000 Session One, Auction #5085 | Saturday, November 5, 2011 | 1:00PM CT 5

  14. 14. 70012 JOSEPH AMADEUS FLECK (American, 1892-1977) Indian Flower Oil on canvas 34-1/2 x 30-1/2 inches (87.6 x 77.5 cm) Signed lower left: Fleck Indian Flower is one of a series of notable portraits Fleck painted in the mid and late 1920s of Pueblo Indians and New Mexican Hispanics. With only a few exceptions, nearly all the figures are depicted from the waist up against the picture plane, posed against a Taos landscape. Indian Flower depicts a rather dramatic cloudscape behind the figure, incorporating a pueblo and the Taos Mountains in the distance. The figure balances what appears to be a Zuni bread bowl on her head, replacing the typical olla. She wears a black rebozo and red dress similar to the clothing appearing in Fleck’s Sagebrush Madonna of 1925. Indian Flower may have been exhibited under that title A Desert Flower in Fleck’s one-man exhibition at the Kansas City Art Institute in 1929 and at the Galerie Bernheim-Jeune in Paris in 1931. These early portraits are among the most sought-after paintings of Fleck’s oeuvre, and consequently are found almost exclusively in institutional collections. Sharing similar academic training with most artists working in Taos in the 1920s, Fleck’s Taos paintings were consistent with those produced by the Taos Society of Artists. However, during the 1930s his paintings took on a definite Regionalist style perhaps due to his ties to Kansas City and Benton as well as the Texas Regionalists. By the 1950s, his brushwork became looser and more expressionistic, and he turned more often to landscapes. Born in Austria, Fleck studied printmaking at the Kunstgewerbeschule (Institute of Applied Arts) and drawing and painting at the Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien (Academy of Fine Arts) in Vienna. His primary instructors at the Akademie, Hans Tichi and Rudolph Bacher, were fringe members of the Vienna Secession led by Gustav Klimt. When Fleck immigrated to Kansas City in 1922, he found work as a designer for Tiffany’s. He also painted portraits of notable Kansas citizens, including the city’s mayor. In the summer 1924, Fleck first visited Taos after seeing a Taos Society of Artists exhibition in Kansas City. He moved to Taos in 1925 with his new wife, Mabel Davidson Mantz, who had family connections in Kansas City and Fort Worth, Texas, that would aid Fleck’s art career. Eventually Fleck had a studio on La Loma, a neighborhood just west of Taos Plaza, where artists W. Herbert Dunton and Blanche Grant also lived. Fleck was especially close to Taos artists E. Martin Hennings and Leon Gaspard. When the Great Depression decreased tourist traffic to Taos, Fleck “resolved to go to the clients” according to his son, Joseph Fleck Jr. At the time this meant Oklahoma and Texas, where oil was still putting money in people’s pockets. This time period also saw several WPA mural commissions undertaken by the artist including Raton, New Mexico; Hugo, Oklahoma; and the New Mexico State Capitol at Santa Fe (never finished). During the 1940s, Fleck taught at the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of Kansas City (now the University of Missouri at Kansas City), succeeding Thomas Hart Benton. He painted murals for the student union at UMKC that still hang there. In the late 1940s, Fleck built a new studio at Talpa, another village south of Taos and near the communities of Ranchos de Taos and Llano Quemado. Taos moderns Ward Lockwood and Andrew Dasburg lived in the Talpa area. Michael R.

  22. 22. 70020 BIRGER SANDZÉN (American, 1871-1954) Early Fall, Smoky River (Kansas), 1940 Oil on masonite 27-1/2 x 36 inches (69.9 x 91.4 cm) Signed lower center: Birger Sandzén Titled, signed, and dated verso: Early Fall / Smoky River, Kansas / Birger Sandzén / Lindsborg, Kansas / 1940 PROVENANCE: The Artist’s private collection; Pratt Community College, Kansas (1941). EXHIBITED: Pratt High School, Sandzén Exhibit, March 1941; Delmar Riney Art Gallery, Pratt Community College, Kansas. An associate member of the Taos Society of Artists, Birger Sandzén was a Swedish-born artist famous for his vibrant landscape paintings of the American southwest. The son of a minister, Sandzén displayed an early artistic talent, which was encouraged and cultivated by his parents. His formal artistic training was completed in Europe, and in 1894 he immigrated to America, where he had accepted a teaching position at Bethany College. For more than 52 years, Sandzén was a professor of art history, drawing, and painting in the small Kansas town of Lindsborg. He was a staunch advocate of the arts and worked within his community to organize art clubs, exhibitions, and lectures. Throughout his career, however, Sandzén’s own painting was relegated to late night sessions until 1945, when he retired from teaching in order to devote himself to painting full time. Sandzén’s early artistic style was heavily influenced by Tonalism and Scandinavian Romanticism, but once he began spending his summers in the American southwest, his palette exploded with color. He began visiting Taos in the summer of 1918 at the height of the artist colony. Four years later Sandzén was elected an associate member of the Taos Society of Artists. That same year, 1922, he exhibited with the group in New York, where he also had a one-man exhibition at the Babcock Gallery. Early Fall, Smoky River is a vibrant example of Sandzén’s work, here being offered by the Pratt Community College Foundation. This painting was exhibited at the local high school in Pratt, Kansas, in March of 1941 after which it was acquired by the college. A thick impasto layer, reminiscent of Impressionism, is tempered by a modernist execution in Early Fall, Smoky River. Sandzén’s Fauvist palette and strong brushwork energize his plein air landscapes while leaving the viewer with a sense of visual purity All proceeds of the sale of this work benefit the scholarship fund of Pratt Community College Foundation. We would like to extend our appreciation to Mr. Ron Michael, Curator of the Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery, Lindsborg, Kansas, for his assistance.

Leigh 1932 PROVENANCE: Grand Central Galleries, New York (label verso); Mr. Eric Jonsson, Dallas, Texas; Thence by descent. Home Sweet Home, W. R. Leigh’s evocative painting of three men sharing a campfire set against a golden Southwestern sky, contains all the elements that have made the artist’s work a perennial favorite among Western art collectors. It is masterfully drawn, saturated with the colors and tones of the western landscape, and it tells a compelling story of camaraderie on the plains. It was completed in 1931 at the height of Leigh’s skill as a painter. By that time, the artist had spent many years traveling throughout the West, but with a particular interest in the Indian lands of New Mexico and Arizona. He used his travels to make meticulous sketches and oil studies of the land and people of the Southwest, often producing over one hundred images in any single location. Later, back in his New York studio, he referred to those sketches to create large works such as this painting. William Robinson Leigh was born in 1866 and grew up in rural West Virginia where he showed a very early aptitude for art. Born into a family that had lost their fortune in the Civil War, Leigh was able to attend the Maryland Institute in Baltimore at the age of fourteen through the generosity of his aunt and uncle. He excelled at the institute and left to study at the Royal Academy in Munich only a few years later. He studied in Germany for another 12 years and returned to America with a mastery of the techniques of the Old European masters. While he had long dreamed of venturing into the American West to stoke his artistic imagination, the necessity of earning a living led to his decade long work as an illustrator for the leading illustrated publications of the day, such as Collier’s and Scribner’s. Like his contemporary Frederic Remington, Leigh bristled at the constraints and lack of creativity in terms of subject matter and style that were necessary in the illustration market. He felt that his true artistic talent would not reach its full potential until he could put aside his work as an illustrator. In 1897, he had made a brief trip to Wyoming for Scribner’s magazine to gather material for a story on western wheat farmers. That trip whetted his appetite for more travels in the West, but economic necessity would keep him away from fulfilling that dream until 1906, when he entered into a mutually beneficial arrangement with the Santa Fe Railroad. In exchange for free passage to the Southwest, Leigh agreed to paint images of the Grand Canyon and other western subjects for use in the Railroad’s advertising campaigns. Leigh had been invited by a friend from his Munich days to visit Laguna, New Mexico and his contract with the Santa Fe railroad allowed him to spend several weeks soaking up the Southwestern landscape and culture. That initial trip was profoundly influential on his career and development as an artist. During the next several years, he traveled extensively in the Southwest and throughout the West, including the Yellowstone territory of Wyoming and Montana. At each location, he spent as much time as possible painting outside, often under the shade of a large umbrella. He painted throughout the day and often arose in the middle of the night to capture the cool colors of the moonlit landscape. In Home Sweet Home, Leigh utilized the long hours he spent painting directly in the field to present a quiet scene that is rich in detail and color. His three companions, two cowboys and a Navaho Indian are dramatically lit by a small campfire and are surrounded by their provisions and gear, the placement of which and the attention to such details as the labels on the cans in the camp boxes adds an extra touch of authenticity to the scene. In the background the three riders’ horses are tethered at the horizon line and are contrasted against a brilliantly colored sky. All of Leigh’s skills as an artist and storyteller are amply displayed in this one scene that was the result of hours of sketching and preparation. Home Sweet Home and Renegade at Bay were originally acquired by Mr. Eric Jonsson, former mayor of Dallas from 1964 to 1971. Heritage is pleased to present these exceptional paintings on behalf of the Jonsson family.

  38. 38. 70041 THE PROPERTY OF PHILIP JONSSON WILLIAM ROBINSON LEIGH (American, 1866-1955) Renegade at Bay, 1941 Oil on canvas 24 x 29 inches (61.0 x 73.7 cm) Signed and dated lower left: W.R. Leigh 1941 PROVENANCE: Kennedy Galleries, New York (label verso); Mr. Eric Jonsson, Dallas, Texas; Thence by descent. Beginning in 1906, W. R. Leigh made many trips to the American West while maintaining his studio and home in New York City. While his travels covered a wide range of western territory, he had a particular interest in and affection for the Indian lands of Arizona and New Mexico and spent much time there. Leigh was a highly trained artist who had spent twelve years in the Royal Academy in Munich and had worked as an illustrator for ten years in New York before he made his first extensive trip to the West. While he painted other subjects in his long career, most notably a series of murals depicting the African landscape for the American Museum of Natural History in New York, his favorite subjects were the Indians, the landscape, and the cowboys of the Southwest. When an art critic complimented him on one of his western scenes, he said that “the West brings out the best in me.” Painted in 1941, Renegade at Bay, is indicative of Leigh’s talents as both a figure painter and a landscapist. Leigh’s skill in each discipline was honed through his rigorous training in the European academies. Also contributing to his skill was Leigh’s practice of making hundreds of field sketches that he would later use as color and tonal references for his finished works. Each of his paintings was meticulously constructed in the same manner. He began with the backgrounds and worked his way slowly to the primary figures in the foreground. Each figure was drawn in charcoal and then colored over with oil. While on location, Leigh would paint the landscape at several different times during the day to make sure that he could accurately depict the quality of the southwestern light at any given hour. Renegade at Bay shows his figures in the brilliant light of midday. The colorful horse and dismounted rider are skillfully contrasted with the more subtle colorings and shadings of the arid landscape. As always, Leigh deftly incorporates details and nuances that add to the painting’s overall feeling of reality. A meandering stream pools water just to the left of the rider adding yet another authentic detail, while the cowboy’s hat lies in the sand to the horse’s right giving the viewer the sense of having just walked up on the scene as it is unfolding. At the forefront of the scene is a beautifully drawn and painted horse whose calm demeanor is an effective contrast to the tension displayed by the cowboy who is awaiting whatever danger lies just around the bend. Leigh’s earlier experience as an illustrator no doubt gave him ample experience in constructing a visual narrative, but paintings such as this one sprang completely from his own imagination. They were conceived as dramatic vignettes of the Old West, stories of a time and place that continue to have a powerful hold on the popular imagination. Unlike his contemporaries in the field of western art, Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, Leigh achieved his greatest recognition and success relatively late in his career. He was 75 when he produced this work and his skill as an artist had not been diminished in any way by his advanced age. While both Remington and Russell had highly successful but relatively brief careers, Leigh captured the beauty and drama of the American West with consistent quality for almost fifty years. In many ways his career marked the end of one era: the nineteenth century heyday of the great western illustrators and eye-witness artists, and the beginning of another: the modern era of contemporary western artists. For serious collectors of western art, Renegade at Bay stands as one of Leigh’s most accomplished paintings from his mature period.

Born in New York City in 1909 and educated at Syracuse University, Lovell began earning his living as anillustrator while still in college. After graduating in 1931, he launched a successful free lance career as a magazine and book illustrator that stretched overforty years. His work appeared in all of the leading publications of the day including Life, McCalls, Saturday Evening Post, and Collier’s. He was called onto depict a wide range of subjects from contemporary life to ancient history, but his favorite subject and the one that he would eventually devote himselfto on a full time basis was the history of the American West. Within that subject, he was particularly fascinated with the history and culture of NorthAmerican Indians.Lovell’s painting The Raven Followers, shows his skill as an artist, an historian, and a visual storyteller. As an artist, Lovell was painstaking in his approach,often producing several preparatory sketches in pencil, charcoal, watercolor, and oil. Before proceeding to work on a large oil, he often drew the entirepainting in charcoal at the same scale that he would use for the finished painting. By the time he began work on a painting like this one, he had alreadyworked out the composition and color. In effect, each of his large paintings was the end result of many weeks and months of preparation, both in termsof artistic technique and in historical research. Lovell wanted his paintings to be visually interesting and also to tell a good story that was grounded inauthenticity. Many of his paintings, such as this one, were accompanied by a note on the back of the canvas giving the historical context of the scene.Lovell was the consummate professional artist, adept at capturing figures and the beauty of the landscape and also in conveying the look and feel ofhistorical periods. His work has been widely collected and has been recognized with numerous awards and citations. While grateful for that recognition,he felt that the greatest award was the knowledge that in paintings like The Raven Followers“ he was able to “tell a good story, while giving the viewer asense of another time and place.”Estimate: $150,000-$200,000 Session One, Auction #5085 | Saturday, November 5, 2011 | 1:00PM CT 43

UmlaufOne of the premier sculptors in Texas in the second half of the 20th century, Charles Umlauf’s sculptures range in style from realism and abstractexpressionism to lyrical abstraction. Born in South Haven, Michigan, to German immigrant parents, Umlauf studied at the Chicago School of Sculptureand the Art Institute of Chicago (AIC) under Albin Polasek. Beginning about 1932, Umlauf worked at various jobs in Chicago before becoming an assistantto another famed Chicago sculptor, Lorado Taft. Returning to the AIC, where he remained until 1937, Umlauf did sculpture commissions for publicbuildings for the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project (WPA/FAP). Umlauf moved to Austin, Texas, in 1941 with his family where he taughtfor 40 years in the new art department of the University of Texas. Fellow faculty included Ward Lockwood, William Lester, Constance Forsyth, andEverett Spruce. From 1960 until 1991, he personally supervised the casting of his sculptures at various foundries in Italy. His sculptures are found in publiccollections across the United States. These include the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Witte Museum; the Dallas Museum of Art; the SmithsonianInstitution; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. During his career, Umlauf was presented nearly every professional award, including both a GuggenheimFellowship and a Ford Foundation Grant. In Texas, he was honored in 1985 by the Houston Art League as “Texas Artist of the Year” and in 1993 by theCity of San Antonio as “Alcalde.” In 1985, he and his wife, Angeline Allen Umlauf, gave their home and studio with sculptures, drawings, and paintings tothe city of Austin. Today the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum is a destination site for lovers of sculpture.Umlauf began to explore spirituality-especially Judeo-Christianity-in his sculpture before he left Chicago. Consequently, he was one of very few Texasartists bold enough to make spirituality a significant segment of his oeuvre. Supplication speaks directly to the surrender of human beings to a HigherPower and the appeal for succor from an Almighty in humanity’s struggles. Notwithstanding the spiritual angst of Supplication, it is a very powerfulexample of figure sculpture.Estimate: $4,000-$6,00070 To view full descriptions, enlargeable images and bid online, visit HA.com/5070

EXHIBITED: Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, February 16, 2008- May 11, 2008 (label verso). In 1931, 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, Flora Blanc. 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 Portrait of Joe Harris, Dickson Reeder demonstrates why he is such a celebrated portraitist. In 2008, this portrait was included in an exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum titled Intimate Modernism: Fort Worth Circle Artists in the 1940s, as one example of the level of brilliance that Reeder, who did not always enjoy painting portraits, could achieve when he felt an affinity toward his subject. Joe Harris was an intimate of the Fort Worth Circle and friend of the artist. Therefore, the final product captures so much more personality and spirit than your average portrait. It is a stunning example of Reeder’s modernist approach to traditional subject matter. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a painting that has been lauded greatly by both scholars and collectors.

SchumannMost art students emulate the work of their teachers. Consequently, the influence of Galveston painter Julius Stockfleth on this very early Paul Schumannpainting is very clear. Its naïve feel - particularly in the treatment of the figures - is indicative of the burgeoning student’s travails in rendering the humanform. Moreover, Stockfleth specialized in ship portraits and Galveston wharf scenes; views Schumann painted rarely, preferring instead, in his maturework, to focus on fishing-related genre scenes and seascapes, with some landscapes done in other parts of Texas.Estimate: $8,000-$12,00072 To view full descriptions, enlargeable images and bid online, visit HA.com/5070

SchumannBorn in Germany, Schumann settled at Galveston about 1882. He studied under Galveston artist Julius Stockfleth and became a well-known painter ofGulf scenes, although he also painted in West Texas and New Mexico. Schumann was a member of the Southern States Art League, the Texas Fine ArtsAssociation, and the Galveston Art League. This rare inland landscape by Schumann depicts Cross Mountain just north of Fredericksburg, a site alsopainted by Edward G. Eisenlohr. This view could very well be looking south with Fredericksburg visible in the background. Although Schumann wasknown especially for his palette-knife paintings, this work appears to be made up almost entirely of brushwork; a rarity in his oeuvre.Estimate: $8,000-$12,000 Session Two, Auction #5070 | Saturday, November 5, 2011 | 3:00PM CT 73

Eisenlohr spent a part of every year in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and was a constant entrant in Santa Fe art exhibitions. Consequently, he is considered both an early Texas artist and a member of the Santa Fe art colony. Santa Fe Landscape is an example of what he called his “little gems,” and underscores Eisenlohr’s importance to both Texas and New Mexico art collectors. Eisenlohr first studied art with Frank Reaugh and Robert Jenkins Onderdonk, later attending the Art Students League in New York. Over the next twenty years, he was known as one of the most accomplished artists in North Texas. He exhibited widely, and his credits include the Art Institute of Chicago; the National Academy of Design; the Texas Centennial Exposition; the New York World’s Fair; the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe; and museum exhibitions across the state of Texas.

Indeed, this painting subject has been rendered in a particularly hazy manner, giving the painting an almost abstractquality, which, when combined with its fairly unusual vertical composition, makes it a very special example of his work.“There are bluebonnet paintings, and then there are bluebonnet paintings. Certain Julian Onderdonk paintings transcend the pejorative designations; thisis one of those works.” -- Michael Grauer, Associate Director for Curatorial Affairs/Curator of Art at the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum.Julian Onderdonk was a native of San Antonio and the son of the artist Robert Jenkins Onderdonk. In 1901, at the age of nineteen, he moved to New YorkCity and attended several art schools. He then studied plein-air painting with William Merritt Chase at his summer school in Shinecock, New York. Afterreturning home to Texas in 1909, Onderdonk enjoyed considerable success during his lifetime. He became best known for his paintings of bluebonnets,but he also loved to depict the Texas Hill Country in all its incarnations. Unfortunately, he suffered an early death at the age of forty. In 2008, the DallasMuseum of Art held an exhibition entitled “Bluebonnets and Beyond: Julian Onderdonk, American Impressionist,” which has further established his workas the most admired and sought-after of the early Texas artists.Estimate: $60,000-$80,000 Session Two, Auction #5070 | Saturday, November 5, 2011 | 3:00PM CT 75

His impressionistic depictions of the Texas landscape have helped toinspire the rising popularity of Texas art as a focus for collectors, scholars, and exhibitions. Born on a farm near Austin in 1910, Salinas never lost touchwith the land, and his work reflects his personal relationship with the beauty of the Texas Hill Country. His career was significantly advanced by theintroduction of his work to important private collectors such as Texas Governor John Connally and President Lyndon Johnson.

A pillar of Lone Star Regionalism, Dozier’s 1930s work isextremely rare. The Houses is a special opportunity to acquire one of his regionalist works. By the 1950s, he settled into a tectonic modernist style towhich 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 ColoradoSprings Fine Arts Center with Boardman Robinson. In 1932, he helped found the Dallas Artists League. He showed in the Dallas Allied Arts exhibitionsand at the Texas Centennial Exposition. Dozier also made lithographs and was a member of the Lone Star Printmakers. He became Robinson’s assistantand traveled to Colorado Springs annually until 1945. By the 1960s, Dozier had moved away from his Regionalist beginnings to a semi-abstract stylebased on observation of natural landforms across the American West. The Davis Mountains, Big Bend, and the Terlingua area became favorite spots inwhich he “set” his paintings by the late 1950s and through the 1970s.Estimate: $20,000-$30,00080 To view full descriptions, enlargeable images and bid online, visit HA.com/5070
