Re-framing Titian (ctd.)
December 14 2014
Picture: National Gallery
I mentioned recently the National Gallery's fundraising attempt to buy a new frame for one of their Titians (the new frame is on the right). There was a very interesting piece on this on Radio 4's 'Front Row' last week, in which the National Gallery's head of framing, Peter Schade, speaks about the campaign, and, more interestingly, about his work at the National Gallery in general. You can listen to the piece here at about 21 minutes in.
The appeal is now at 64%. The total is £27,000. I still think that's a shockingly expensive price.
