The Met Open Access Images Ogee Frame Date: ca. 1720–30 (?) Culture: French Medium: Oak lower moldings; lime upper moldings. Carved, gilt; orange bole. Dimensions: Overall, 53.5 x 68.2 cm; sight, 35 x 49.2 cm; rebate, 37.4 x 51.6 cm. Classification: Frames Credit Line: Robert Lehman Collection, 1975 Accession Number: 1975.1.2535 This somewhat heavy frame was used on Claude Monet's "Houses on the Achterzaan" of 1871 (1975.1.196), which it complemented by lending weight to the atmosphere of the composition. The unabraded gold added a warm tonality. Unlike that of so many frames used for Impressionist works, the gold of this one has hardly been distressed at all.
