About

Louis Buvelot’s Winter morning near Heidelberg and Summer afternoon, Templestowe (p.300.5-1) were reframed in 2002 as a matching pair.  This resolution of the framing came with the discovery of a photograph from 1866 which showed both paintings on display in matching frames.

Winter morning near Heidelberg had been reframed in c.1880 with a classical revival, fluted scotia frame made by John Thallon (see image above).  The label provides the date of the frame.

The resolution of the actual form and detail of the frame from the 1866 photograph took some time with research across a number of collections, existing frames and pictorial sources.
