Framing Options

All paintings are sold as unframed. However, if you require a frame this can be arranged for most paintings on paper. The frames that I use are for exhibition purposes and are of a uniform style. See below for types of frames and shipping requirements.

Costs of framed paintings are available upon request. As a guide, a small, 25x35cm painting priced at £80 would cost £120 with framing, postage and packaging for delivery within the UK.

Frames

Construction of Frame

The frame consists of a plain round moulded ash outer, 1.7cm wide. There is a double mount inside, consisting of an ivory outer and a thin gold inner which directly surrounds the painting. The mount and painting are held in place with a back board, fastened with benditabs. The painting is strung ready for hanging.

Frames can be supplied with standard glass. As shippers will not insure glass objects I ask purchasers to accept any of risk of breakage. Every effort will be made to provide adequate protection to glazed frames. 

 

 

Sizes and Shapes of Frames

There are two basic shapes of frame. Firstly, the off-square rectangle and secondly, the long rectangle form.
 The off-square rectangle, as illustrated below, comes in two sizes       

Large:approximately 67 by 50cms (outside dimensions) suitable for

52 by 36cms paintings – half imperial
