Eli Wilner & Co Completes Historic 19th Century Frame Replication for Sotheby’s

Company replicates two of Sir Frederic Lord Leighton’s Tabernacle Frames

 
PRLog - Oct. 8, 2009 - NEW YORK, NY (October 7) – This Fall Sotheby’s (NYSE: BID) will unveil two highly important 19th Century European paintings: one on a painting by Sir Frederic Lord Leighton Venus Disrobing for the Bath and the other Beauty in a Marble Room by John William Godward.

The Eli Wilner Company, which is based in New York replicated the frames as both artists are noted Victorian painters that favored classical-style frames for their artworks.

Frederic Lord Leighton was especially active in frame design much like the Pre-Raphaelites, and favored his original tabernacle-style designs for many of his paintings.

Godward was a protégé of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (who also designed classically-inspired frames) and incorporated architectural elements in his paintings that depicted idealized, romanticized views of classical civilization, especially ancient Rome.

Wilner used two of Sir Frederic Lord Leighton’s favorite tabernacle frames – One for Leighton and one for Godward.
