About

The frame is an example of the hybrid styles emerging from the nineteenth century. Loosely based on the Queen Anne style bolection frame, it uses corner embellishments that cross between rococo and neo-classical, all on a reduced scale, particularly on the width. Nevertheless, the frame forms a harmonious relationship with the painting.
