The print was restored, re- framed with museum quality mat board with gilded bevel and protected with Museum Glass. In order to present artwork correctly mat board margins were increased.  Appropriate mat board width is very important. The width is determined based on artwork, frame style and mat board color.

 

 

Antique panting with old frame   antique painting restored and re-framed

John J. Enneking, oil on canvas, Private collection, Hamilton, Bermuda

After restoration was completed the painting was framed with Italian Cassetta frame in Dutch finish with wide gilded liner. We created a custom gold shade with green undertones to complement painting colors. Gilded liner finish was heavily antiqued so it would not compete with the painting. We always select shades of gold after artwork treatment.
