Christie’s - Graphic Masterworks
John Jones we’re delighted to be selected as the framer of choice to present highlights from Graphic Masterworks: A Century of Design, a landmark sale of over 100 vintage posters featuring artists famous for their revolutionary use of typography, layout, production and colour.
The collection has been presented within acid free 100% cotton mount board, selected to preserve the delicate posters from fading and yellowing caused by cheap, poor quality mounts. Each poplar wood frame has been carefully cut, joined and sanded to a silky smooth surface by British craftspeople before being stained to a bespoke finish by skilled artisans. Each frame has been designed in a unique profile shape and colour to complement the individual artworks. When framing vintage poster designs, it is crucial to ensure the works are preserved behind conservation grade glazing which includes an ultra violet light filter. Specialist foil lining within the frame protects the work from gases released naturally by wood over time, whilst strong backboards safeguard the piece from any knocks and bumps that may occur during it's lifetime on display.
