Picture Framing at it’s Best
The origins of picture framing are to be found in the Middle Ages when multiple related works were displayed as church altarpieces in frames encrusted with gold leaf. The tradition of using elaborately hand carved or restrained gold frames to set off a picture continued in the Renaissance when private collectors wished to show off their treasures in the best possible light. The style of carving a frame styles varied from region to region. For example the contrast of black and gold was popular on frames in northern Europe.
