Framing Van Gogh

Posted on May 20th, 2013

A few years ago we were asked to re-frame Van Gogh’s “The Night Café” for the Yale University Art Gallery.  Our frame presents “The Night Café” in an entirely new way–and the framing has been controversial.  Radical though the frame may appear, it is much closer to the artist’s intention than was its previous Louis XIV frame.

Jared Bark wrote about Van Gogh’s interest in framing and an account of our experience in framing this painting. The article is published in the current quarterly publication of the International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR Journal vol. 13, No. 4 2012/2013). It can also be seen on our website by clicking here.
