Antique Frames

  • Over the years we've done a number of programs on painting, and as part of the discussion we've addressed issues relating to the framing, including dating and value, but we have never done a show exclusively on antique frames. Well, this show will fill that void! Actually several people have recently asked me to do a program on frames, and that's what prompted me to take action! A few months ago I did a show entitled, "Analysis of a c.1700 Painting," and a large part of that program was a discussion of the frame and stretcher, so if you missed that, you may want to view it also. Please watch this show through to the end, as I'm asking for everybody's opinion about one specific frame (and painting). Let me know what you think.
