Image of Women in picture framing

Picture: Musée des Beaux-Arts d’Angers

There's a fascinating entry on the Frame Blog by Jacob Simon, king of all things frame-related, on the role of women frame makers. Goes right back to the 17th Century.

The above picture was unknown to me; it's by Louis Adam, called Emile.
