Happy November everyone!
Here we are showing you the perfect frame for an antique Mexican painting, we have chosen Gold with a wash of brown and black adding a little bit of distress to the surface. We hope you like it!
Iconography, as a branch of art history, studies the identification, description, and the interpretation of the content of images: the subjects depicted, the particular compositions and details used to do so, and other elements that are distinct from artistic style. The word iconography comes from the Greek εἰκών (“image”) and γράφειν (“to write”).
A secondary meaning (based on a non-standard translation of the Greek and Russian equivalent terms) is the production of religious images, called “icons”, in the Byzantine and Orthodox Christian tradition.
The frame used here is from Fotiou with an added sienna wash. The perfect fit for these pieces.
These beautiful wood block prints were framed with dark ebony Larson Juhl Frames
from the “Made in America” Cranbrook Collection.
