Every frame’s job should be to complement the piece it holds. Often-times, the framer matches the tones or “temperatures” of the piece. In lucky instances, a frame can match the textures within the piece.
This wide aged-silver molding emulates the tones of the horses in the piece as well as the dapple-grey patterns on parts of the subjects. The soft, warm silver of the frame delicately supports the inner characters’ texture. The deep white 12 ply mat provides the frame job with a dramatic cascading effect, which also resembles the bevel of the frame. This naturally brings a viewer’s eyes to the center, and therefore the piece.
