Custom Framing of Joan Miro Original Etching

Posted February 19, 2018

Upon Arrival

A client recently brought in this multi-plate color etching by Joan Miró for restoration and custom framing. The artwork has been returned to stable condition through the removal of mold and stains, as well as the strengthening of the weakened paper fibers.

Custom Framing

Following the restoration, we gave the etching a new archival Crescent Cardboard mat and a hand-gilded Larson-Juhl moulding from the L7 collection, inspired by Le Corbusier. This moulding is elegant but simple enough not to distract from the artwork. Properly restored, this superb example of an uncommon printmaking technique will remain in excellent condition for many years to come.

Background

Etching is an antiquated printing process initially used as a means of commercial reproduction. The process involves exposing a metal plate to acid and etching lines into the plate that will hold ink. After inking the plate, it runs through a printing press. Etchings like this one are particularly labor intensive because each color requires a separate plate.

Our Commitment

As a custom framing shop, we appreciate the level of care and attention to detail that went into the creation of this fine art print. We make it our business to treat your artwork with that same level of care. We also recognize the importance of using archival materials and reversible methods in order to preserve your art in the best possible condition. Our team pays close attention to the construction of our frames to ensure that the corners align perfectly and the finish is even and consistent. Each completed piece goes through multiple quality checks guarantee the satisfaction of our customers.


Mr. Brainwash in Chicago

Posted March 29, 2017

Recently we worked on a very special project for a private client in downtown Chicago. This artwork is an original Love is the Answer by Mr. Brainwash that a private client brought to us for framing. We gave it the best treatment: it has a 5″ float on Crescent Cardboard Co, LLC Museum Solids, museum quality plexiglas and a beautiful distressed silver moulding from Universal Arquati. We also provided delivery and installation services from Jake Feldman Fine Art Installation, LLC who did an expert job facilitating this project. The overall dimensions were close to 4.5 feet by 6 feet, making it one of the largest artworks Peterson Picture has framed and installed!

 

As you can see, it was no problem for our team of art handlers and installers. We can coordinate pick up and delivery nationwide for any art project!

The previous framer had the artwork in a small poster frame. On our site visit we analyzed what finishes would match the client’s existing decor and what treatment would best preserve the artwork against damages. We used Museum Acrylic from Tru Vue to protect the artwork from UV rays, you might be able to see the window reflection in the art!

Mr. Brainwash is a pseudonym used by French-born, LA based street artist Thierry Guetta. He is most known for shooting the footage from the Banksy documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop. Guetta organized some of Banksy’s earliest shows in LA, eventually creating his own work which our client purchased. Graffiti, pop culture references and screen printing techniques define street art as a genre.
