We provide appraisals of frames on individual works and whole collections both private and public, describing period, nationality, quality, condition and suitability. Important frames are highlighted including pictures which could be improved by reframing.
A client’s picture may most easily be viewed in different frames using computer-generated montages, or by physically standing the painting in successive frames, or both.
