Before and After
This family piece was presented to us in its original 1950\'s painted wood frame that is too small by todays standards, and did nothing to showcase the art.
A larger gold frame that was toned and lightly distressed was selected as the new frame. The patterns and overall tone are much better suited for this painting than the original frame.
This painting by Edgar Payne was brought to us after we re-framed a Payne for the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
A rather dated frame with a linen liner did little but distract the viewer from the painting. The focal point became the linen liner.
We chose a simple profile with a multi layered painted finish and a narrow gold liner as the replacement frame. The frame is no longer a distraction, but creates a visual package showcasing the painting.
