VIRTUAL SHOWROOM

Picture size

Sizing is always measured Height X Width and is the outside dimension of the item, be it framed or unframed.

Unframed

Unframed pieces do appear on the website and prices refer to the artwork only. When selecting an unframed piece, you will be prompted to select a frame that fits the piece….which is optional….you may take the piece unframed if you prefer.

Note: Images that are framed and under glass such as works on paper may have the glass removed by us for your convenience for a minimal charge.

Related Pieces

Images that appear in the catalogue with an asterisk beside them indicate when something has a related piece or is part of a series. Related pieces are similar in subject matter, size, frame colour and style. When you click an item on the website accompanied by an asterisk all of their related pieces will appear.
