    An artist that frames their work?

    Hi does anyone know of an artist that makes a frame for their work or draws one?

    for my final piece for my first unit in college we had to do a collage. For mine i collaged a large frame on the outside to look like guilt (sp?) goldish and it was 3d.

    It would be great to reference it to an artist so yeah its working backwards but it would look better in my SB when i hand it in so it doesnt look just random.

    Yeah so please post any artists you can think of

    thanks

    many dutch artists of the 17th century composed their paintings with a frame like this example by Gabriël Metsu (not the best example but not a bad one)

    Also, if you look at the sistine chapel ceiling, much of the apparent molding is painted rather than really exisiting.


    Or at least that's what I learned in art history.

    (didn't know that about Seurat, though. cool stuff)

    yeah renaissance is big on that. masaccio would be a great example since he was one of the first to do false sections of buildings receding from the wall etc

    oh, you're talking historically. Because I know many contemporary, but that's of little value here
