The Art of Picture Framing

Screen Shot 2012-08-15 at 1.42.15 PM

The framing of a picture is in every way as important a factor in its looking well and receiving the attention it deserves…to frame pictures of different styles alike in one design of frame is to kill their individuality. You may spoil absolutely the effect of a fine picture by an unsuitable frame, just as you make an almost poor one look distinguished by a proper setting. Put a delicate, subtile Whistler nocturne in a glittering, heavily ornamented frame and hang it on a wall with a lot of other pictures and you will never see it.
