Since its opening, Petley Jones Gallery has offered the highest quality in conservation framing. All framing is done in-house by our own experienced framer.
We have a large selection of moldings ensuring that we will have the right frame for your art or treasure. Whether it needs to suit your taste, to enhance a painting’s beauty, make it period appropriate, or preserve it for the ages there is a frame for you.
Beautiful and Green
Roma Moulding takes great care and pride in knowing that their mouldings are made using only woods from active reforestation programs. Suppliers adhere to strict guidelines and use reclaimed wood when appropriate. In addition, they use recycled and environmentally friendly packaging materials whenever possible.
Old Frames and New Frames for Old Paintings
Is there art in your collection that have frames needing an upgrade? Older pieces may have components that are not archival. We can replace the glass, mats and backing and put them together better than new.
In this example we replaced the tired frame on this JEH MacDonald with a classic “Group Frame” . We have more in stock if you have a little panel that needs something new. (8 1/2 x 10 1/2 – sight line)
We only use 100% acid-free, museum quality materials, and offer a full selection of glass ranging from regular to museum quality UV protection.
This ongoing website feature arises out of the interest shown in the exhibition, The Art of the Picture Frame, held at the National Portrait Gallery from 8 November 1996 to 9 February 1997. It was launched in April 1998. It provides an update on the exhibition and gives information on current research.
