Conference in English by Huub Baja
in the framework of the exposition
Thursday 19.11.2020 at 18.00
Six centuries of picture frames are shown in a bird’s eye view, from the 14th- and 15th-century International Gothic Style, to the Art Nouveau of around 1900. Surviving, original framings will be highlighted as unique combinations of paintings in their first frame, offering exiting time capsules with secrets about context, visual impact and even meaning.
