St Ives Frame

Frames such as this were popularised in early to mid 20th century through the work of the St Ives artists in Cornwall. Also know as Nicholson frames after Ben Nicholson, they remain popular to this day. They are normally made from three sections of frame profile; one for the inner frame, a flat section and another profile for the outer frame.  Commonly finished in  white paint or gesso and paint they work extremely well for wide variety of art styles. This frame is suitable for art on standard depth canvas or boards/panels. 

Ashcraft Framing will be offering these frames via our website soon. initially in white only , then in unfinished wood and ultimately in self-assembly form to support the demand for large frames of this type.
