About

Foster Brothers – Foster Brothers was an American frame company founded in 1875 in Boston, MA that made beautifully designed hand-carved and gilt frames frequently marked with a brass medallion on the verso.

American frames were greatly influenced by English and French styles in the 18th and 19th centuries. Although frames were frequently mass produced in the 19th century and gilt ornamentation was usually cast in plaster or ‘compo’ instead of hand-carved, many beautiful designs originated from this time in America. The Hudson River School frames and the frames designed by Stanford White are exquisite examples. In the early 20th century, American frame makers of the Arts and Crafts movement returned to the art and tradition of their craft by hand-carving, gilding, and signing their frames. The firms of Carrig-Rohane and Newcomb-Macklin as well as frame makers in Taos and Bucks County created some of the most beautiful American frame designs of this movement.

Art Nouveau – The Art Nouveau Movement was an early 20th century modern style practiced in Europe and America characterized by elegant, flowing lines and inspired by the curves of nature.
