Works of art deteriorate over time. Oils on canvas, watercolours, papyrus, pastels, all art must be saved quickly before losing its colours or even its texture. Framing protects. It also calls out to the admirer, keeps his gaze in the framed field, and allows him to concentrate on the framed surface. The frame has not always existed, but it has imposed itself over the centuries. Exuberant or discreet, it has come in all shapes and forms, and continues to be invented according to fashions. As in architecture, the frame evolves. This is what Renato and David Soardi show us in their rue Barillerie workshopwith an immense choice of possibilities for all works of art, paintings, sculptures, engravings, in order to protect and enhance them.
