"Huntington" a pseudonym for a Lee Reynolds Burr, impresario of' The Artmaster Studios from the San Fernando Valley', in California, from the mid 1960's to the late 1980's. He hired a stable of remarkable painters who hand embellished these large serigraphed prints and worked them into an industry as illustrious as Wallace Nutting's in the early 1900's, hand painting his black and white photographs by hundreds of women, whose works became enormously popular, hanging on almost everyone's walls and popular even today.
With Reynolds, backgrounds were often done in acrylics and then line-work was silkscreened from the master copy. (This silkscreening technique was also used by Andy Warhol’s The Factory.) Details were then added to the screened lines to create a raised effect. The finished product was then sprayed with an oil sealer, thus creating an original oil painting. And as one friend said about its intrinsic value: 'Prices will increase because what's not to like, and the older it gets the better it looks'.
This work is considered to be in the style of a primitive, folk art genre, simply because of its subject matter: an idyllic country life, beautiful house interiors, childlike rag doll, teddy bear appeal. Absolutely suited for a child's room or playroom, something to cheer some corner of the house into a playful, sentimental area. They sell on Ebay for between $200.00 and $500.00 with shipping costs around $225.00.
Both frame and painting in excellent condition. Due to shipping costs being so high I can dismantle the frame and ship everything in a large tube to be reassembled in your home or by a picture shop. (You would need some Carpenter's glue and staples.)
