Episode 242 of 1333 episodes

An exhibition dedicated to picture frames opens at the National Gallery today. 'Frames in Focus: Sansovino Frames' aims to challenge the way we see paintings by focusing on the picture frames that the works of art are displayed in. The display showcases 30 frames gathered in London from across Europe, but only two of them house paintings. Caroline Campbell is co-curator of the exhibition and Mark Darbyshire is founder of Darbyshire frame-makers.
