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.

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.
