This is a picture framing technique called composite framing (meaning more than one frame is used). Black on the outside and a gold inner to focus on the picture.
This frame is particularly suited to strong colours. It gives a presence to the painting when it hangs on a wall and the gold inner frame draws the eye straight to the painting. It highlights the painting particularly well. These would be classed as modern mouldings and are quite fashionable at the moment.
The painting is an acrylic, painted in an oil style by Alan Kenny. This premium frame is 10” x 8” and would cost €78 made to this size.
This is a very popular frame and it is used mostly by popular and better selling artists. We mainly use composite frames for oils (and use mounts or mats for paper pictures). I always use glass as it makes the colours more vibrant. This black frame is particularly suitable for strong colours, however, a frame like this will dominate other framed items around it unless thay are also in black. If they are not black fames then I recommend that this should be hung on its own.
