Description: Bristol: Sansom, 2011. 28cm., hardcover, 208pp. illus., most in color. Summary: This book is the culmination of a three-year project by the late Brian Stewart to raise awareness of the importance of historical and artist-designed frames, and the marriage between frame and work. No museum objects have been more neglected. Frames are often an integral part of the work but despite this they are sometimes separated, not conserved or not catalogued. Falmouth Art Gallery, where the associated exhibition will also be held, is the first gallery in the country to research, restore and catalogue both picture and frame as an aesthetic union. Using Falmouth’s important collection this book examines the artist's relationship with the frame from the early eighteenth century, through to the modern day. Included are Sven Berlin, Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, Thomas Gainsborough, Kurt Jackson, Dame Laura Knight, Sir Alfred Munnings, Ben Nicholson, John Singer Sargent and John William Waterhouse.
