Neo-classical framing

Pictured here is an equestrian photo with a contemporary and decorative French-style frame. This frame is normally much wider, but we scaled it down to about 1″ from the usual 3-4″. It’s also typically done in gold leaf but we finished this one in a painted matte antique white.

This is a good example of taking a classical style, changing a few key elements, and now it’s neo-classical.  This gives the piece a youthful air about it, which this piece needs, bringing it into the 21st Century.
