These simple frames were designed for the Russian Impressionist painters in the early 1920-30s. The high profile next to the painting accentuates surface, brushwork, color and texture. I use a light red or a silvery tone depending on the painting.
Often I use gallery wrapped canvas and do not frame the painting.
