We specialize in Victorian Style Picture Frames since 1905. Victorian art was an artistic movement in the UK during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837–1901). During Victoria’s reign, the United Kingdom was probably the most powerful nation in the world. Victorian art was, in all its fields, strongly influenced by the Renaissance movement. Therefore in the field of painting, Raphael, became the main character and most of the painters tried to copy the idealism of the Renaissance master. After that, the role of art changed its trend from idealization to the focus of the real world.
In the middle of the 20th century, a group of artists formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. These painters observing nature tried to catch any worth detail to represent the reality as real as possible. In other words, they wouldn’t try to represent the subjects looking for noble appearance. They taught moral lessons through the use of their art. Likewise, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was fascinated by modern scientific breakthroughs. Above all, they wanted to deny the biblical version of human history. In conclusion, in the middle of the industrial revolution, they represented the ascent of the new bourgeoise social class. Even if it was relatively a short-lived movement it became very influential for contemporary and future visual arts.
The main characteristic of Victorian decorative arts, including frames, is to have been inspired by many past styles. Consequently, they were mixed up in an eclectic way forming sometimes an excess of ornaments. In other words, European decorations together with the middle east and Asian influences gave birth to the interior decorations of houses.
The best samples of Victorian Style Picture Frames are the ones that have a good harmony between ornaments without exceeding in too many decorations.
