Framing in a classic era

Framing for a classic era

This fashion drawing of two men dressed in 1920′s tuxedos is a classic example of the ritz that defined this iconic era.  The image is detailed solely in neutral tones with a light wash background and set within a sketchy graphite border.  The antique white mat gives the image enough breathing room while ensuring the piece is the central energy of the frame.

The deep bevel of the mat has been painted black to mirror the rough border of the drawing while complementing the stark black lapels and shadows of the figures.  A white gold finish on the frame relates to the flashy and glamorous era that the style is famous for.  The design of the frame stays true to the art deco architectural styles of creating geometry and clean forms.  This leaves the lasting effect revamped and tastefully vintage.
