About

Carlo Maratta – Carlo Maratta frames are a type of molding frame popular in England and America usually incorporating two or more rows of continuously carved decorative ornamentation on a cove or concave profile. A similar style is known in Italy as the Salvator Rosa frame.

English frame designs were greatly influenced by French and Dutch styles. Although frames were often mass produced in the 19th century and the gilded ornamentation was usually cast in plaster or ‘compo’ instead of hand-carved, many exquisite designs were created during this time such as frames associated with the Pre-Raphaelite and Aesthetic Movements. The reeded or Whistler style frame, widely made in late 19th century England and America, was used extensively by James Abbott McNeil Whistler.
