Coloured Frame Mounts
Our designers are constantly looking to push the boundaries of artwork presentation, discovering new means of protecting and showcasing fine art to its full potential. In this project, we were looking for a way to further enhance and dramatise the colours within a private collection of painted images by Leonora Carrington.
Our team made the decision to present each delicate work on paper within a coloured window mount, carefully selected to match specific tones used by the artist. These coloured mounts are set within a delicate wooden frame design, finished with a hand-painted two-tone wash. Each frame is first coated with coloured paint to match the mount, before being dusted and waxed in black. Subtle flecks and hints of the underneath colour shine through, extending the colour palette of the artwork into the frame design and adding presence and gravitas to the collection.
Each painting has been protected with our highest quality ‘water white’ glazing, containing an ultra violet light filter and a low glare coating in order to create an optimum viewing experience.
Our colour specialists can match any shade of your desire, creating a completely bespoke presentation solution for your artwork. If you are interested in learning more about coloured framing and mounting, please contact a member of our team.
