Dobson was active as sculptor, painter and designer. His few surviving paintings from before 1914 show the influence of French painters such as Paul Cézanne and he had begun to carve by 1914. In 1920 he was selected by Wyndham Lewis as the only sculptor in the ‘Group X' exhibition. His first post-war carvings exhibit an aggressive angularity, which suggests a conscious intention to adopt the Vorticist style of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Jacob Epstein. This was a short-lived phase, and from the mid-1920s Dobson was to concentrate on the naked female figure treated in a calm, simplified monumental fashion that shows an affinity with the work of Aristide Maillol.
