Christie’s - Alexander Volkov
The John Jones team are very proud of our strong relationship with auction houses across the globe. We regularly frame collections for sale or display at these prestigious venues, including this solo exhibition of work by Alexander Volkov. John Jones were pleased to frame more than 50 artworks from the early period of this Russian-born painter, described as ‘one of the most outstanding phenomenon’s in Russian art’.
Each bespoke frame has been cut from the finest quality walnut wood, soft sanded by hand to a smooth and even finish. The profile of the frame design has been moulded into a subtle bevel shape to complement the style of the artwork which combines western painting with traditional Asian craftsmanship. Each piece is mounted with 100% ‘antique white’ cotton mount board which harmonises beautifully with the dark green stain of the frames themselves. All of these materials are acid-free to ensure the long-term conservation of the work throughout their lifetime on display.
'The frames are fantastic. they emphasize the works in such a beautiful manner. The artist’s family were very pleased with the presentation' Meruyert Kaliyeva, Christie's
