Enhance Your Pieces Of Art Inside A Frame When you're an artist, you've got a high level of pride in your work and would like to see as many people as you can enjoy seeing it. You may or may not understand that picture framing to display your art has some important benefits, especially if your artwork is two dimensional. The first benefit that will be important is using the picture frame to actually make your art work look its best. The exhibition of your artwork can be enriched and perhaps deepened with a picture frame that complements your work, in the same manner a violinist's performance of a violin sonata will sound that much better when it is accompanied with a piano. Obviously, using a frame that takes away from your work will have the opposite effect, just as a poorly performed piano accompaniment can ruin the performance of an accomplished violinist. Over the ages, displaying the works of artistic masters has been enhanced with complementary picture framing. For example, in the world famous Louvre Museum in Paris, France, the oil paintings of 17th Century masters are often mounted in large frames gilded with gold leaves that silently proclaim the magnificence of the artwork within their borders. One cannot imagine viewing such pieces of art displayed any other way. Regardless of how simple or complex your artwork is, it will likewise be perceived in the best light possible if it's complemented with the right picture frame. Another important benefit is protection of your artwork. You worked hard to create it, so it deserves to be protected while being exhibited, moved, and stored. It is a known fact that artwork which has been properly framed will last longer and withstand more abuse that unframed pieces of art. So viewers aren't able to actually touch the art work and leave behind their acidic fingerprints, some techniques are widely used to increase the protection, such as glass or acrylic glass (i.e. Plexiglas) panes to cover the picture; to help prevent fading and degradation of organic paint materials, use ultraviolet filtering, when the work of art is displayed or stored in direct sunlight or fluorescent lighting; and to keep the pane from touching the surface of the picture, use mats that will prevent water condensation from damaging the work. If done tastefully, the matting can actually improve the appearance of the picture. The back of the frame can offer extra protection if a backing board is utilized to deliver needed support, or a heavy paper backing is used to avoid dust and insects from harming the work of art. Acid-free backing paper is offered for use in archival framing situations. Of course, using a picture frame may also be the simplest way to display your artwork while protecting it at the same time. When you place you work of art on an easel, for instance, it could lead to disaster if the artwork is bumped off accidentally by someone looking at it. In contrast, if the work were hung on a wall inside a sturdy frame instead, the likelihood of such an accident would be almost entirely eliminated. Plus, you'll completely eliminate the need to find or clear a suitable space to set up the easel with the appropriate protection. In addition, hanging your work in a frame on a wall might be more ideal for achieving proper lighting than displaying it on a sloped easel. For all these reasons and much more, you should consider picture framing to maximize the appreciation of your artwork. It is possible to protect your artwork while it is displayed if you use quality picture framing in Manhattan.
