In this case, we installed the painting in its new frame in an unusual way. The border of the canvas was unfinished and clearly intended to be covered by the frame. But the surface was also delicate with areas of loose paint. Therefore, in designing this frame, we decided to suspend the canvas in the frame by attaching from the rear to a maple tray. When the painting was installed in the frame, this provision to protect the surface of the work was virtually invisible, as we intended.
