The Art of Picture Framing
A Picture frame will either transform or destroy a painting. It is important that you choose the right frame. What you are aiming to do is to make sure that the frame compliments your portrait.
We can offer advice on selecting the right frame, we will also arrange to have the frame made and fitted to your portrait. Our expert advice will enable you to end up with the most complimentary frame for your portrait.
We work with a number of master-frame makers who work in the traditional techniques; all the frames are hand made, gessoed and gilded. The frame maker will have available a wide selection of their hand made mouldings which you can choose from. To view the wide range of mouldings that are available please click on the following link:
