        About

        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.

        Venetian – The sumptuous Venetian style was characterized by rich colors and lavish embellishment; Venetian frames were equally opulent carved and gilt frames . The widely used 18th century Canaletto frame featured an ogee profile, punched corners and centers, and burnished panels.
