«Картина и рама». На основе материалов выставки Государственной Третьяковской Галереи
This report is based on the collection of the State Tretyakov Gallery, and it concerns interaction between pictures and frames. Sometimes frames contain texts on their own plane. Texts affect the perception of the image, amplifying viewer’s emotions. Quoting texts on frames is not a new technique but in Russia of the second half of the ХIХ century it acquires national characteristics. This report deals with two groups of examples: pictures and frames created by the state order and those made according to the author's idea. Presented examples show the importance and inseparability of the ‘union’ of frames with the paintings. The report underlines the importance of conservation and restoration of author's frames in order to keep the ability of paintings and frames to dialogue.
