I thought I had a bit too much information going in as I learned water gilding in art school and have been reading, viewing and collecting frames for some time. I have enjoyed Context Tours live in Rome and Istanbul. A friend has been enjoying the Context subjects online while not able to travel and gifted this to me.
Wow, I learned so much. My favorite part was how original frames were changed to suit the owner's taste. The Ingres frame that he designed was a great example. The incorporation of the painting's theme in the frame as in Murillo's Immaculate Conception was another favorite.
An excellent job by a very knowledgeable and engaging host.. Thank you.

Fascinating discussion on the history of the picture frame - an aspect of the presentation of artworks which is often overlooked. Hattie's expertise and experience in this field made her talk particularly insightful.
AMAZING!! A Must for Students of The Decorate Arts!
A delightful look at an often overlooked subject. The presenter's enthusiasm and knowledge of the material as well as the accompanying visuals made it a grand "Conversation".
