The Art of American Framing

Art Show, Gallery, Installations, Museum, Painting
Have you ever noticed what a difference a frame can make in how you see an artwork? Since the Renaissance, framing has been an artform in itself. Carved, painted, and gilded frames can not only enhance a painting but also reflect the tastes of their time. This exhibition looks in depth at a selection of American frames from the 19th and early 20th centuries, illustrating key trends and changes which are reflected in the frames on the American still-life paintings in the galleries nearby.
