It is important that you know the proper materials and procedures for framing. Frames are used to enhance a work of art aesthetically, as well as to protect it from dirt, dust and handling, while maintaining a controlled setting essential for the life of the piece. There is more to framing than just four bits of wood around a picture.
In terms of aesthetics, you should choose what pleases you and what works for the picture. The framed artwork will become part of your everyday environment, so be sure to choose a frame and mount that you will enjoy. If you don’t know what you want ask for guidance; your framer probably has seen many different types of art, and knows what works well, and what doesn’t.
