A pair of custom hand-carved frames were prepared for a client. The first was done in the Louis XIII style with hand-carved corners and 23 karat gilding. The second was done in a Modernist style and also gilt with 23 karat gold. Together these frames show a diverse aesthetic palette while containing some of the same elements. This is the beauty of frame-making: subtle changes finely-tuned by hand to maximize the presence of the painting.
