Private Art Collection - Gloucester Road
Our design team were approached to re-frame this striking quadriptych by legendary photographer Helmut Newton. The four images have been separated into two distinct pairs of ‘dressed’ versus ‘undressed’ and our framing and installation solution was designed to reflect this.
Each pair has been butted together with museum quality installation fixings and a small three inch gap has been allowed between the two sets. This hanging solution serves to separate the two pairs whilst ensuring the four images still flow together as a cohesive, single artwork.
Each image has been presented within an aluminium frame design, welded by hand and sprayed to a matt black finish in our custom spray booths. Unlike wooden designs, aluminium frames have no danger of warping or altering shape over time as they will not react to any changes in the environment. To provide the highest level of long-term conservation, the series is protected with optium acrylic glazing which contains a low glare coating and an ultra violet light filter. Each frame has been fitted with specialist Perspex fillets to ensure this glazing is raised a safe distance away from the artwork, and the design also includes microchamber paper to delay artwork deterioration.
