Summary: Art curators often say that they love adjusting oil paintings in frames. They also conclude that this framing procedure affects the presentation of the painting.


When you select a piece of art that you want to hang on your house or office building’s interior wall, you may overlook the frame. Some people don’t realize how the frame can affect the overall appearance of the painting and change the experience and emotion of the buyer. As an art collector, you strive to place the work in a specific location, but how can you risk the delicate balance of emotion and experience by overlooking the frame? Instead of considering it as an afterthought, you should equalize the painting with its frame. Here you will learn about the factors that you must pay attention to while framing an oil painting.


  1. Artistic appeal: As already mentioned earlier, the painting should resonate with its frame. If the painting is a classic, then the frame should be equally artistic, if not more. Some of those framed oil paintings for sale over the web come with intricate frames, but others don’t. The casing reflects the style of the work, especially if they are paintings created by eighteenth or nineteenth-century artists. The importance of the frame shouldn’t recede to the background even if you purchase paintings created by the artists of today.


  1. Suitability: Indeed, the frame of the painting has to suit the work itself. It can change the feel of the oil painting entirely. If you aren’t aware of the intricacies associated with selecting enclosures for the paintings that you buy, then you should resort to framed oil paintings for sale to skip the hassle altogether. Nevertheless, you mustn’t forget to inspect if the frame suits the work. The casing of an oil painting provides the viewer with cohesion within the painting, highlights with the scene, or sets boundaries for the action. So, if the painting invokes a strong feeling whether positive or negative, the enclosure has to support that mood.


  1. Originality: You can purchase framed pieces of art from specific art-vending websites. Before you purchase it, you should inspect it carefully. The frame should fit the work that it holds, not in terms of setting but originality. You have to stick to the same approach when you reframe it several years later. Some of these art-vending websites place the paintings in nondescript casings to appeal to a wider range of buyers. These companies think that the buyer will eventually replace the frame after purchasing it.


  1. Adequate protection: The ultimate objective of framing an oil painting is to protect it from harm. If the frame enhances the appeal of the piece, then it’s a bonus. However, inferior art-vending firms may frame the art pieces in things that may end up causing more damage than protecting it. Specific pieces like photographs or other works created on paper can benefit from the protective glass. Oil paintings, on the other hand, will experience damages due to the pressure exerted by the glass against the medium.


Final words


Now you know all the factors that you need to take into consideration while framing your favorite pieces of art. Make sure that the frame not only protects the oil painting but also enhances the overall appeal of the piece. While no one should judge a book by its cover, you can amplify the beauty of the oil painting with its cover; the frame.
