Refitting old works with master framer Simon Quinn

spent the morning with master framer Simon Quinn refitting large works damaged by clients, ‘Blue Amathonto 0220′ and a very rare ‘Danaus Chrysippus 4176′ each in a whopping 190 x 190cms deep velvet edged frame – each weighing in at 70 kilograms. Simon has built all my frames for the past 5 years and they are as good now as they have ever been.
