Framing Fin de Siecle Paris

Architecture depicted in a painting is very often a cue for designing the architecture of the frame. We just framed this ca. 1900 unsigned impressionist painting of a Paris street scene for California Historical Design. The painting’s 9-3/8″ x 13-7/8″. I wanted the frame to be simple and plain to suit the loose painting style, but to acknowledge the baroque building. The frame is quartersawn white oak with Light Medieval stain. It’s a 2-1/2″ wide flat profile with a raised sight edge carved in a simplified baroque pattern. Available here.Framed painting of Paris street scene
