"It's funny how the beauty of art has so much more to do with the frame than the artwork itself"
- Chuck Palahniuk -
With 49 years of experience, David Lewis Browne has become a leader in the field of...
installation and project management
...evolving new treatments and methods to adapt to a rapidly-changing world.
We have cared for not only fine art from some of the country’s most prestigious private collections, museums, galleries, artists, insurance companies, and corporations but also private clients cherished keepsakes from certificates to family portraits and heirlooms.
Our team is expertly trained in the treatment of framing works of art on both paper, linen and canvas, photographs, textiles, objects and sculptures. The manner in which a work is mounted and framed has tremendous effect on both its long-term preservation and the way the piece is perceived. When framing a work our goal is to preserve the artist’s original intent by using non-invasive and reversible techniques and utilizing archival-grade materials, thus forming our treatment philosophy of less is more. We strive to uphold the greatest standard of care when preserving and handling your work.
We would also like to thank our staff for their dedication since our doors opened in 1974. The years of striving for perfection in every treatment, respect for the art and the artist’s intent, and the constant commitment to learning and sharing knowledge are core tenants of our team. We strive to create a company culture that fosters cross-pollination of knowledge as the organization continues to produce the best possible treatment with every piece that travels through our workshop.
