Venetian Picture Frame Decorations
From the artistic point of view, Venice has always been a crossroads of various cultures, and for this reason, it is rich in innovative and avant-garde elements. Although the Venetian style is particularly characterized by its own elements, in this model we can see strong influences of the French Rocaille style. We can see them especially in the corners, they tend to get out from the outer perimeter as French frames do. The shape, with a strong French character, contains, however, the specific element that informs us about the real provenience of the frame: the cartouches in the middle of the sides. These ornates let us no doubt about its origin.
