Christie’s - Kate Moss Sale
John Jones were delighted to be the chosen frame designer for Kate Moss - The Collection - Curated by Gert Elfering, a selection of works celebrating the renowned supermodel as a great modern muse.
Each unique frame has been hand-made to complement the individual sale lots from either high quality timber or welded aluminium. The designs were joined, sanded, stained and polished to bespoke requirements, creating beautifully unique frames which add glamour and stature to the photographic artwork. Pieces by the likes of Allen Jones, Annie Liebovitz, Mary McCartney, Irving Penn, Mario Sorrenti, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller and Mario Testino were included in the sale, demanding the highest level of conservation. Each frame has been fitted with sturdy backboards, museum quality glazing, acid free 100% cotton mount boards, fillets to ensure the glazing does not come into contact with the surface of the artwork and foil lining to prevent harmful gases from deteriorating the image over time. Beautiful frame design can enhance the visual presence of an artwork whilst also offering long-term protection to the financial investment of the collector.
