“The frame is the picture’s accompanist: it has to be self-effacing and subordinate to the picture, and yet positively enhance and contribute to its beauty. Accompaniment is an art in itself.”

—Timothy Holton

Everyone comments on the Birge Harrison painting you reframed for us. It is as if they have never seen the painting before, though it has been in the collection since 1929.

— Andrew Wallace, Figge Art Museum, Davenport, Iowa
