ORIGINAL ART PAINTING WITH ORIGINAL FRAME AND RARE CUSTOM SURFACE WORK TO PROVIDE A LIGHTED PRESENTATION. THE LIGHTING MAKES THIS VERY RARE BY THE STUDIO AND MAY HAVE BEEN FOR A MOVIE PROP. RARE ALSO IS THE USE OF WHITE FOR THE SAILS. LEE REYNOLDS (BURR) OPENED THE VAN GAURD STUDIO TO PRODUCE ART. MUCH WAS PRODUCED UNDER HIS NAME BY SCORES OF ARTISTS THAT WORKED FOR THE COMPANY. WHILE HE DID OFTEN PAINT THE PRODUCTION WORK TO BE COPIED THESE WERE OFTEN DESTROYED FROM STUDIO USE. MANY TALENTED ARTISTS WORKED AT THE STUDIO SIGNING WITH HIS NAME. THAT IS ONE REASON WHY THERE IS SUCH A LARGE RANGE OF SIGNATURES FOR LEE REYNOLDS.

THE QUALITY OF ART PRODUCED MID CENTURY WAS THEN AND STILL IS NOW, VERY GOOD. THIS PAINTING FEATURES A EASY TO FIND COLOR BLEND OF SHIPS IN A BAY AT SUNSET. THE ORANGE SUNSET MAY BE A "LOVERS DELIGHT BUT A SAILORS FRIGHT" INDICATING A STORM IS MOVING IN OR IT COULD JUST BE A SUNSET.

THE SIZE OF THIS ONE IS INTENDED FOR COMMERCIAL DISPLAY AND LIGHTING MAY HAVE BEEN DONE FOR A MOVIE PROP OR A ONE OFF CUSTOMER. VAN GAURD ALSO PRODUCED ONE OFF WORKS FOR MOVIE PROP USE. THIS ONE IS LIGHTED IN THE BACK WITH WINDOWS ON THE ART PAINTING SO THAT IT WOULD POP AT NIGHT. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF THIS WAS A MOVIE PROP. THE PICTURES SHOW AN ORIGINAL FRAME OF THE TYPE OFTEN USED BY THE STUDIO. THE FRAME IS IN GOOD CONDITION FOR THE AGE, SOLID AND CAN BE PAINTED OR LEFT AS IS.

THE INNER WHITE CLOTH AREA, AS OFTEN IS THE CASE IN A PAINTING THIS OLD, FEATURES DUST OF AGES. THIS CAN BE TAKEN CARE OF BY PAINTING OR BLEACHING THE AREA OR A LIGHT CLEANING WITH THE ART OUT OF THE FRAME. WE LEAVE ART AS FOUND SO THE NEW OWNER CAN DECIDE WHAT IS TO BE DONE.

THE PICTURES SHOW THE BACK WITH WIREING AND PLUG, SOME PAPER LINER MISSING. THE ORIGINAL LIGHTING DOES NOT WORK BUT REPLACING THE 50 YEAR OLD LIGHTS WITH MODERN ONES WILL NOT BE AN ISSUE.

NEW LIGHTING IS MORE VIBRANT AND COOLER THEN THE OLD TYPE AND WOULD ADD A FUN ELEMENT FOR EVENING DISPLAY. THE EFFECT IS HANGING LANTERNS ON THE RIGGING AS WAS DONE BACK IN THAT DAY AT NIGHT. THE ART WORK IS OIL ON HARD SURFACE WITH THICK DRIP PAINT OVER IT FOR A MULTI DEMENSIONAL EFFECT.

TEN BOATS IN HARBOR IN THE PAINTING, SEVEN SMALLER WITH WHITE SAIL, ONE NO SAIL, AND TWO LARGE BOATS FEATURING THREE MASTS EACH WITH WHITE SAIL. THE WHITE SAIL PROVIDES A CONTRAST TO THE OTHERWISE DARK PAINTING. IT MAY BE OF INTEREST THAT THE ARTIST CAPTURED THE WIND EFFECT ON EACH BOAT ON THE FLAGS.

LOVE THE VIBRANT mcm COLORS. THIS ART WORK WEIGHTS ABOUT 20 POUNDS.
