Cool Abstract Large Lee Reynolds Painting

I have a very large Abstract oil painting signed by Lee Reynolds numbered on back in two places. It has the Vanguard Studios Copyright on it and looks to be 70's maybe. It is really Wicked, It looks like Cloaked figures coming out through mist. Very Beautiful and Dark. Shades of Grey Black and white mostly and small subtle hints of blood red here and there. It's Oil on Canvas and the signature is also painted on. Its 51" x 41" tall and the Matt is also painted around the picture, very unique. I would really like to know the name of it and just basically where I can find more info on it. I would sell it if I didn't love it so much. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A bit of info on Lee Reynolds Burr from

Lee Reynolds Burr

Lee Reynolds was born in Los Angeles in 1936. He attended the local schools and was awarded a Bachelor's Degree on Fine Art at the University of Southern California. He currently lives in Beverly Hills, California, with his wife and two children.

Mr. Burr was graduated from the University of Southern California. His has a purely personal technique and his eclectic taste resulted in the now famous Bullfighter series, where his original signature can be found. In addition, his theme adaptations on a series entitled, "The World's Children" was met with marked acclaim in 1971. His paintings and prints hang in many important collections and innumerable museums.

He was the director for Vanguard Studios in Beverly Hills, California in the late sixties. He has served as Chairman, Board of Directors of East Park Gallery in Los Angeles.

He signed his early works as Lee Reynolds. Also, the signature "Lee Reynolds" on a piece later indicated a staff artist from Vanguard Studios, California's famous art workshop. Vanguard artists are trained at America's finest art schools but also have successfully competed with others with equally impressive backgrounds to achieve their coveted positions as members of the Vanguard staff. Lee Reynolds Burr permitted the signature "Lee Reynolds" to be affixed to the best of the works conceived and executed at Vanguard Studios. At the same time, the signature was accompanied by a Vanguard Studios stamp on the back. When he allowed apprentices at the studio to use the name Lee Reynolds, he switched to signing his personal work as Lee Burr. When the students stopped painting, the pieces were signed Lee Reynolds Burr.
