(no date; 1889?). Oil on canvas, 12″ x 14-3/4″. Framed in special carved Compound Mitered flat — 4-1/2″ total width, in quartersawn white oak (Medieval Oak stain).
Trevor Davis gets credit for this design, which is based on a sloped corner sample he made. This frame is flat due to the shallow perspective and flat wall depicted. The frame carving pattern is a nod to the Taos frame-making tradition, but in oak (rather than gold, as usually used by Taos framers) it’s more in keeping with the vernacular life that inspired Mr. Welch. A good example of how a dark frame can suit a bright painting.
