Framing a Hudson River School Painting

Feeling very privileged indeed to have had the chance to frame this classic view of the Hudson River by a Hudson River School painter, Charles Wilson Knapp (1823-1900). Just completed this week, the frame is a 4″ wide Compound Mitered frame, in a slope form with a cove at the outside and a peaked cap molding. The forms are pretty direct and straightforward readings of the essential forms and perspective of the painting.
