Lee Reynolds Landscape

About

An unusual landscape by Lee Reynolds, circa 1970s. Here is a historical note about the artist-Lee Reynolds Burr. Burr was born in Los Angeles and graduated with a BFA from UCLA in 1962. He initially created artwork for Bertini Studios but soon decided to go out on his own. Two years later, he founded Vanguard Studios with his business-savvy brother Stuart to give average American families the chance to own a “real” oil painting, much like the etchings that had democratized the art-owning experience in America a century earlier. With paintings sold through a network of Vanguard showrooms, furniture stores and interior decorators around the country, business started booming, and 10 years later, both men were multimillionaires with a publicly traded company. Burr periodically traveled to Europe (where he hung out with Salvador Dali) to buy paintings at auctions that he could then replicate at his LA studio for mass consumption. Burr never set out to be part of the contemporary fine art movement. His product was decorative art: pieces that would look nice over couches in middle-class homes, with an actual artist’s signature (usually “Lee Reynolds” or simply “Reynolds”) to make them seem more exclusive and genuine. Vanguard tackled many different styles and subjects—landscapes, bullfighters, supercute or sad children, boats at sea, flowers, architecture, still lifes, romantic images of old Europe, and more—very well, with the representative pieces often mirroring the illustrative style of the day. Burr painted original works that were then copied by his crew of artists, but as business grew, he hired Americana painter Harry Wysocki as Vanguard’s chief designer and employed Argentine artist Aldo Luongo to contribute designs. Burr periodically traveled to Europe (where he hung out with Salvador Dali) to buy paintings at auctions that he could then replicate at his LA studio for mass consumption.
