Canvas Stretching & Framing
We take great care stretching paintings on canvas or linen. The application of paint, age of the painting and quality of the cloth are all taken into consideration so that the proper tension will be applied during stretching. We always prefer to staple the canvas on the back of the stretcher bar, but when there is not enough extra canvas, we will staple on the sides.
Modern framing for canvases is known as floater frames. The canvas sits within the frame, showing all edges of the canvas allowing you to visually experience the entire work of art, because sometimes every mark made on the surface matters.
