The illustrated talk will provide a survey of the history of frame styles and framing practices, from the Renaissance to the 20th century. Reference will be made to the frame in the context of historic interior design and the development of ornament, collectors and their taste in framing and the relationship between artists and their frames. Carving, gilding and decorative techniques in frame making will also be discussed.
Doors open at 5:30 pm. Seating is limited and on a first-come basis.
Sponsored by Friends of Painting and Sculpture (FOPAS), a DAM support group.
