The frame is an interesting example of a partly carved timber frame from early in the 20th century. Like the other frame for a Lambert painting by Chapman,The official artist (1183-3), this one is carved rather than using applied composition decorative elements leaving us with a sense that this was an important quality in the frame for the artist. The fragment of the frame label is at the centre of the bottom reverse of frame.
