Hello,I have this painting by Lee Burr and was wondering if its an original. I would appreciate any information. Thankyou

Answer
Dear Sam,

Lee Burr, also known as Lee Reynolds, founded Vanguard Studios which employed numerous artists whom duplicated paintings based off of the originals. Although Burr's works sold by Vanguard were signed by him, none of the artworks were actually painted by Burr and were produced in multiples so therefore they are not considered originals.  

In regards to this work, it is a Vanguard production as multiple copies exist. Another one can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/194814787/vintage-mid-century-modern-signed-oil?ref=sr_gallery_5&ga_search_query=lee+burr&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery . Hopefully that helps. Andrew Evans
