Marysia Burr art prints and posters

Marysia Burr was born in 1956 in Wadowice, a small town near Krakow in southern Poland. Surrounded by rolling hills, meadows and forests, she recalls her happiest days were spent with nature. Later, as a successful artist in both her homeland and abroad, she would write: "Through my own art, I seek to express my experience with human emotion, to portray that emotion with shadow and light. My paintings are a personification, finding elements of nature in the human condition."

Marysia began her study of art in the Bielsko-Biala High School of Fine Arts, from which she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She then entered the Polish Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where she majored in Graphic Arts with a special emphasis on painting and drawing. Her early art experience was greatly influenced by her study with two of Poland's pre-eminent artists: Henryk Stazewski, whose abstract painting focused on the use of line, light and colour, and Eugeniuz Markowski, one of her academy professors who shared with her not only his skill as a painter of realism and expressionism, but the energy and motivation that is so much a part of the expression of art. Marysia is also impressed with the work of Dutch-born Willem de Kooning.

While studying in Warsaw, Marysia received numerous awards for her realistic rendering of the human form in oils, watercolours and pencil. She graduated from the Warsaw Academy in 1981. After immigrating to Southern California, the artist sought to resolve the apparent dichotomy between realistic and abstract art, and changed her focus from figure painting to landscapes and natural forms, increasingly incorporating light, colour and shapes into continuous motion. Marysia had developed a distinctive style by creating brilliant and expressive works that are impressionist-like in feeling, colour and excitement.

More about framing

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
