Frame Funding opportunity: Eli Wilner & Company offers up to 50% off framing projects for museums
Thomas Hill, Forest Stream, Berkshire Museum, Pittsfield Massachusetts.
NEW YORK, NY.- Through our network of generous clients, Eli Wilner & Company has secured funding of up to 50% for framing projects for museums and other nonprofit institutions. The company has already begun framing projects for a number of institutions over the past few weeks, including frame replication, antique frames, and frame restoration projects.

There is still a generous balance in their account toward these special projects. Eli Wilner & Company urges you to take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity. Above is an example of a recent project that the company has been able to accomplish.

Eli Wilner & Company created a replica of an American fluted cove style frame, circa 1860s, applied ornament and a gilded, for the Berkshire Museum’s recent acquisition Forest Stream, by Thomas Hill (American 1829 –1908). The painting had entered the museum’s collection bearing a toned silver-leaf frame of very poor quality and condition. With the support of Eli Wilner’s generous clients, the painting now has a frame that allows its beauty to be fully appreciated.

A recent acquisition of the Smithsonian American Art Museum had a lovely original frame that had sustained significant damage. Eli Wilner & Company restorers returned the frame to its original beauty by casting and replacing the missing pieces, re-creating the damaged areas of the foliate liner, regilding the repairs and patinating the work to blend with the original surface.

Eli Wilner has framed over 10,000 paintings, including a large Jacobo Bassano painting for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and 28 paintings for the White House. Eli Wilner & Company is proud to have just completed the framing of Emmanuel Leutze’s Washington Crossing the Delaware for The Metropolitan Museum of Art. For over two decades, Eli Wilner has loaned several hundred frames for the Old Master and 19th Century European painting sales at Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Bonhams and Doyle.

Since 1983, Eli Wilner & Company has published over 100 articles about the antique frame, and collaborated with curators from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Parrish Art Museum, National Academy Museum, the Columbus Museum of Art, and many more, in their exhibitions of frames.


We look forward to working with you!
