Inlay Frames at the Tate Modern


During a recent trip to London I managed to find time for a couple of hours at the Tate Modern. The collection display Structure and Clarity had a number of works by some of the 20th century’s leading contemporary artists. The images above  illustrate a few of the various styles of inlay frames used,  some as used or specified by the artist and some by the museum when the work was unframed when aquired.


Hand Finished Frame for a 3D Abstract

This frame was hand finished from a bare wood profile. The finish was designed to match the metallic green colouration in areas of the artwork. The frame was built up at the back to create the depth required to space the work away from the glass.
