Best Pat Steir Custom Float Frame, Made by Frames and Stretchers NYC

Custom White Picture Frame for a Pat Steir Print

One of the most rewarding parts of working with fine art conservation and offering the best custom framing and canvas stretching in New York City, New Haven CT and Miami, is the opportunity to work one-on-one with clients and collectors to create beautiful designs for each artwork. 

We cherish being able to protect and preserve each artwork’s longevity and archival quality while creating innovative and modern framing designs that will leave a lasting impression in any collection. 

It was an absolute pleasure to build a custom white picture frame for this gorgeous Photogravure aquatint pochoir print by the legendary American painter and printmaker Pat Steir. To create this framing project, we used maple hardwood painted in white and added museum glass to achieve supreme clarity. Then, we float mounted the print on museum board using Japanese paper hinging and rice paste. This style of hinging ensures the artwork will not be damaged in the process, while providing a reinforced seal that will secure the artwork for generations to come. 

All of our artisan conservation techniques are executed with the utmost care and respect for your artwork and fully reversible, should you wish to change the design in the future your artwork will always be protected.

Come take a visit at our Frames and Stretchers studios to compare framing options in Lower East Side, located within the historic Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Education Center. Our designers are happy to provide recommendations for the best archival materials and expert craftsmanship with all varieties of framing preferences and have years of experience to discuss which framing or stretching solutions will complement your piece best.
