Publisher Comments:

Works of art in their own right, frames play an essential and often overlooked role in complementing the artworks they support.and#160; The craft and history of European frames is a fascinating subject and this volume provides a rich and informative guide to the frame makerandrsquo;s art from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century.

This handy reference tool features over two hundred entriesandmdash;arranged alphabetically from abacus to whitingandmdash;that concisely explain the techniques, materials, and styles involved in the making of frames.and#160; The introduction gives an overview of the history of frame styles and explains how frames are chosen by artists and museums for specific artworks.and#160; Lavishly illustrated with objects from the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, this handbook will be invaluable not only to professionals and collectors but also to all those wishing to increase their understanding and enjoyment of frames.

Book News Annotation:

An assistant conservator of frames in the J. Paul Getty Museum's department of painting conservation, Karraker briefly defines expressions commonly used to describe the history, construction, and conservation of picture frames. He covers frames in the West from Italian paintings of the 13th century to French Postimpressionist works of the late 19th century, focusing on examples in the Museum. His guide should be useful to general readers, students, collectors, and museum professionals, he says. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
