Veronica's Veil, Framed in Black and Gold
New, beautifully framed portrait of Jesus, titled Veronica's Veil, is joining our collection.
We have given this limited edition portrait an antiqued and distressed feel, with a shadow box effect to showcase the hand-detailed frame and the poignant image, as well as the dimensionality of the decorative nails that attach the image to the suede-like background.
The overall effect is that of a one-of-a-kind treasured keepsake, a lovely gift for yourself or for a loved one.
Available at our store.
Antiqued, distressed European-style frame, with gold scroll design and finished corners.
Real decorative nails fasten the image to a soft, suede-like background. The print edges have been distressed and antiqued by hand, so each piece is unique. The image has also been antiqued, and it looks as if painted on old fabric.
And a little frame history to complete this post...
The frame style we chose for our Veronica's Veil image is called "cassetta". It was developed in the early Renaissance (from 1400 to 1479) in Italy, and it is still popular today.
There are many variations to this frame profile, but they all have three basic components: a thin inner edge, a recessed flat, broad area, and an outer edge.
Often the flat area (called frieze) is decorated with gold leaf and various designs, resulting in a beautiful, richly finished frame of unparalleled beauty.
A cassetta frame very similar to the one we chose for our Veronica's Veil image can be spotted in a 17th century painting by Jan Brueghel. See painting with magnified detail area below.
