Our client was very excited to pick up two Norma Kett oil paintings from the 1970s. Unfortunately, the original frames had not survived and the paintings needed a good clean!! The paintings were restored back to their original patina. We suggested using a retro style frame doubled with an inner frame of warm silver to pick out the highlights in the painting. Using compound angles to joint the outer moulding benefits the painting particularly well as the angled frame accentuates the perspective as painted by the artist. It is very important to frame photographs and artwork as closely as possible to the style of the original era as to do otherwise dimishes the relevance of the works.
