(1888-1977) A long-time resident of Omaha, Nebraska, Dunbier was one of the first Nebraska artists to paint regularly in the Southwest.
This artist studied at the Royal Art Academy in Dusseldorf, Germany for seven years and a year at the Chicago Art Institute. At the Academy he principally studied with Adolf Munzer, a prominent Impressionist. Upon returning to the United States he spent a year on the East Coast painting with George Luks and Robert Spencer. Walter Ufer and Eanger Couse were responsible for sponsoring Dunbier's membership into the Salmagundi Club of New York.
In October 2000 Dunbier's biography was published Paint for the Love of Color. He is cited in most reference books dealing with American artists of the 20th century. There have been seven posthumous solo exhibitions of Dunbier's work since 1993.
Known as a colorist, his paintings are characterized by assertive, contrasting colors and bold brushwork.
