FRAMES AND FRAMING


FRAMES AND FRAMING

TIMOTHY NEWBURY    Book Number: 82487    Product format: Paperback

Frames fulfil a variety of functions, from protection to decoration. They can indicate ownership or assert the importance of the paintings they enclose. When a painting retains its original frame, we can appreciate the visual relationship between the two that the artist would have intended. Our book looks at the frame history and design in the context of the Ashmolean Museum's collection. A pine and water-gilt frame surrounds a beautiful William Holman Hunt painting from 1877, a lime wood, carved and gilted surrounds a portrait by Grinling Gibbons from around 1681 and a poplar, carved in gilt, punched frame surrounds an anonymous religious painting from Lombardy, 1578. 80pp with glossary and colour illus.
