An important reference work becomes available once more at a lower price. The book, which is quite unique, reconstructs the history and the development of wooden picture-frames in Italy from the Renaissance to the Neo-classical period.
Published for the first time in 1997, this book has lost none of its former value. On the contrary, it is still a key publishing tool and reference source for collectors and frame vendors in Italy. Curated by three specialists, it explores the subject through a repertoire of 120 important examples, dating from the 16th century to the early years of the 19th century. Each frame is accompanied by a detailed critical analysis.
