What Frames Can Tell Us
Frames are not just decorative ornaments, and their condition, style, materials, and markings can tell us a great deal about the attribution, authenticity and provenance of a work of art. IFAR's distinguished speakers, representing the worlds of Old Master and American paintings, discuss and illustrate frame forensics and the evidence of frames.
IFAR thanks Christie's for providing the venue.
