This flat panel gold plein aire picture frame features a duck bill inner lip with a rounded protrusion to accentuate the containment of the art border, followed by a 1 ¾” wide flat span, which leads to a curve ascending up to a broad rounded ridge along the outer edge. The gold finish sits on a gesso base over a wood substrate.
The profile width of this gold plein aire wood picture frame is 3 3/8”, and the rabbet depth is ½”, making this frame ideal for canvas paintings as well as matted works on paper and beveled mirrors. The substantial width of this frame makes up for any discrepancy in rabbet depth, as thick material such as a 1” stretched canvas would still be hidden from most viewing angles due to the frame width.
Art styles and genres that may pair nicely with this flat panel gold picture frame include pastoral landscapes in oil or acrylic, oceanscapes, impressionism, and other loose, colorful styles. Alternately, this flat panel gold picture frame may also complement realism, especially fine art portraiture featuring dark backgrounds and dramatic lighting.
