Fine Art/Name of painting???

Question
My mother is moving out of state and wants to give me a painting that my Grandmother had hanging. It has on the back a sticker saying it's a Vanguard Studios product. The assembler was #39 and has the packer # plus another number at the bottom in  box 490320.

It is a picture of an early century little boy relaxing on the top of pedestal mailboxes reading a newspaper. I think it's adorable but I want to know the name of the picture. It is a rather large print. It's like 23 X 33.

Could you help me learn more about the print? I tried Googling it and could not find anything similar to it.

Answer
Vanguard Studios was founded by an artist named Lee Reynolds Burr and represents a business venture that was formed in the sixties to create affordable oil paintings for the masses. I do remember the name Vangard assosicated with low end art. After you check this, if you feel you have something other than mass produced art, get back to me and I will research. :)

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
