About This Picture
This frame belongs on an 18th century English painting, newly acquired by one of our museum clients. After stripping away years of grime and repairing loose decorative elements, Brian Gordy, Director of Gilding and Restoration, is preparing it to be gold-leafed. When complete the frame will be entirely refreshed while retaining the beauty of its age.
Restoration is only one of our specialties. For a full description of everything we do click the “Explore Our Services” button.
Gunther Cartwright’s landscape photography exquisitely capture the details of industry that form the backdrop of life in today’s modern world. About his interest in this subject matter, Cartwright explains, “The power lines, telephone poles, fences and industrial structures are a part of my daily visual experience. They are not in my way. I see them as elements of the landscape. They are there and they make their visual ‘sound.’ I am not interested in the picturesque but rather the formal arrangements of elements and color within the landscape.” His eye for vivid color and graphic compositions often draw unexpected connections among things seen in the everyday landscape, transforming banal and rarely celebrated visual moments into striking works of art.
