An original frame is an important addition to any work of art. Wear on a frame can help to establish its history, and is often
integral to the overall value of the painting. Before replacing any antique frame, it is important to have its condition evaluated
by a professional conservator. If restoration if not possible, you may want to consider replacing it with a quality period reproduction frame.
When reframing a painting, choose a frame style that is consistent with the period, and compatible with the painting’s key elements of color and composition.
