The Arts

Though often overlooked, frames make up one of the largest collections on view at the MFA. Join Andrew Haines, associate conservator, Furniture and Frame Conservation, as he leads a tour through the Museum’s painting galleries, pointing out highlights of the frame collection. Compare designs from different periods, examine examples of ornament, and discuss some of the alternative gilding techniques conservators use to keep frames looking their best.
