Just recently I had the pleasure of Framing an original piece of Art by Norman Lindsay. It was for a client who collects Fine Art and often has them re framed and restored as usually the frames have aged and are damaged from being moved around. Also because back in the day they didn't really know what was in certain framing materials and used backing and matboard that has acids which will eat into Art and also discolour the paper over time.
Unfortunately this piece was glued down back in the day and the backing used was not PH neutral which has caused discolouring in the work and also the matboard. However sometimes this adds to the age of the piece and once re framed properly they come up looking great.
As you can see here we have used a fillet under the glass around the Art and also around the writing. We framed this Art to match a previous piece that I had framed for the client a while back.
Along with a fillet, double mat and ornate frame we also used Tru Vue Conservation glass which has a 99% UV rating to protect the work from fading overtime. The Fine Art is backed with acid free foam board which will not effect the Art in any way.
