Brett

Width: 3"

Category: Traditional frames

Type: Twentieth Century , Running Pattern

History:

This frame is based on a design that was pioneered the British artist John Brett (1831 - 1902). Brett seems to have settled on the pattern which became his ‘trademark frame’, and marks a picture as indisputably his. The main element of this frame is an outer narrow cushion, decorated with a zigzag fillet infilled with alternating triangular palmettes. It forms part of a complex moulding which Brett used in combination with a wide gilded mount or flat.
