The piece is framed in a timeless traditional gold frame with matching gold fillet around the image. The matting and backing are conservation and acid-free to protect the art virtually forever. The glass is Art Glass. It is anti-reflective and provides protection from ultra-violet rays which can cause fading. All in all, the best materials were used so the art will be protected for more than a lifetime. The custom framing was created by Leawood Fine Art.
