History! Lee Reynolds Burr opened his Vanguard Studios in Beverly Hills, CA, in 1964 to make oil paintings an attainable decoration for any American household. With seascapes, nautical scenes, still lifes, bullfights, cowboys, pastoral views, hot-air balloons, horse races + abstractions, there was a Vanguard Studios creation to match any taste + interior.

Born in Los Angeles, Burr studied art at the University of Southern California. After graduating + a stint in the U.S. Army, he worked in a local studio as a painter before becoming a home decor entrepreneur w financial support from his mother.

*Only a fraction of the alleged hundreds of thousands of oil paintings produced by Vanguard were actually painted by Burr, even though they were signed “Lee Reynolds,” “Lee Burr” or just “Reynolds.” (As he would later state, those signed solely “Lee Reynolds Burr” were by his own hand, + he would sometimes include a thumbprint as proof.) Instead, a team of artists organized in an assembly line hand-painted + copied works. Sold in furniture stores + through interior decorators nationwide, the Reynolds-signed paintings soon became ubiquitous above couches in living rooms all over the US.

Vanguard Studios was sold in 1974, but Burr’s name was still used on Vanguard paintings. —via 1stdibs
