We were honored to frame this signed and numbered Andy Warhol lithograph of Jimmy Carter here at our picture frame shop in San Francisco. We floated the piece on a dark mat for a strong contrast and to give separation to the clean white frame.
You gotta zoom in on the faces... this piece of art is called “Mark Twain Lion vs Jay Z Tiger.” We floated the paper it in a beautiful reclaimed pine frame from our good friends at Urban Ashes out of Detroit.
We frame so many different pieces of art here at our shops in San Francisco and each photo, painting, canvas or object gets a frame that will be a good housing for the piece itself and also fit the clients taste and needs.
For these three images we wanted to show you how a classic frame design can be adjusted for a modern appeal:
The first image of an antique black and white photograph is framed in an ornate carved Art deco frame inside a distressed wood frame to keep with the antique feel while maintaining a modern line.
The watercolor painting of the koi fish is floated on a clean, light silk mat in a thin hand rubbed maple frame to show off the movement in the paper and keep it modern.
We love dogs! For this fun take on a classic still life we used an ornate gold frame with a matching fillet inside the fabric mat.
