Walpole & Coutts Jubilee Exhibition with Getty Images Gallery
Walpole has partnered with Coutts and John Jones client Getty Images to showcase a celebratory exhibition in honour of HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Showcasing 60 photographs of the Queen and her immediate family in public and private moments, the exhibition spanned the Queen’s entire reign, alongside charming images of her Majesty growing up in the 1930s & ‘40s. This collection was on display at the luxurious Claridge’s Hotel in May 2012 before being featuring at a number of Walpole events to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.
The John Jones London framing team designed bespoke museum level frames to showcase this collection to the beautiful and luxurious standards associated with the exhibition organizers and Claridge’s Hotel. Each print has been mounted to a 100% pure cotton archival board, secured within delicate wooden frame profiles. Each frame has been cut, sanded and stained by hand to bespoke requirements, resulting in a rich and deep brown design which draws out and enhances the colourings of the photographic prints. Above all, these frame designs have been produced to conserve the images from long-term damage cause by ultra violet light rays, dust, airborne pollutants, knocks and bumps.
