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.

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.

Cove – A frame molding, also called a scotia, with a concave profile commonly used in 19th century American frame designs.
