About

Salvatore Rosa – The Salvatore Rosa frame consists of a style of continuous molding believed to have been designed by the artist Salvatore Rosa in the late 17th century. It usually incorporates two or more rows of continuously carved decorative ornamentation on a cove or concave profile. A similar style frame, the Carlo Maratta frame, was very popular in England.

Italy was the center of frame making during the Renaissance and Italian frames came to be known for their fine craftsmanship and artistic beauty. The first frames were made for use in a religious context and tabernacle or aedicular frames were created for altarpieces. Molding frames were introduced for secular purposes in the 15th century and marked the beginning of framing as we know it today. The design of the cassetta, or “little box” frame, comprised of a flat panel or frieze with applied raised inner and outer moldings, would continue to be used throughout frame history.
