This traditional gold picture frame offers a Federal style aesthetic that is heavily influenced by neoclassical sensibilities from the late 18th century. During this period, classical portraiture and grandiose landscapes were prominent genres in a realistic style that American artists adopted from a stylistically European art practice.
Today, the look of traditional gold picture frames continues to maintain popularity in the presentation of contemporary art, and this Federal style gold picture frame is perhaps the quintessential look of today’s contemporary standard gold frame.
The profile width is 2”, and features a 5/8” rabbet depth, making this traditional gold picture frame ideal for both canvas and paper artworks. The profile starts at the inner lip with a beveled protrusion that becomes rounded over, which leads to a flat recessed body section, followed by a series of steps up that lead to a ridge along the outside edge of the profile. The finish throughout features a warm aged gold look.
This picture frame is ideal for both large and small pieces of art, whether original or reproductions. The profile is strong enough to accommodate large canvas paintings quite well, but a small 5x5 panel painting would equally balance well in this 2” wide gold picture frame.
