In this book of stories -- most never before published -- Robert Drake has written his most poignant collection thus far. With the theme of the picture frame, Drake has included people, places, and events of a most recent past. "Crowded in the picture" are unforgettable images of memory and grace, love and remorse. But more than the characters and the subjects of the story, the draw of this collection is once again Drake's use of language. The language is the language of the South. It is the language of humanity. While the stories look back, they do so without regret. They were great times, but so is the present. From the town of Woodville to St. Mark's Square in Venice, Drake's powerful language draws the reader not only into the book, but also into the photographs.

CHAPTER ONE. ABOUT PICTURE FRAMES. THE PICTURE FRAME, as it exists today, is derived from the doorway or entrance to temples, palaces and cathedrals. From a functional viewpoint, it might have been more practical to place doors at the sides of these buildings, but the impor tance of the door framing an impressive picture of the interior was never overlooked. The need to enhance a picture or bas-relief with a frame is evidenced from the earliest times. The first decorations were necessarily crude a raised line some times being the only ornament The earliest examples of frame-like decorations or borders bear a great resemblance to door frames. They were composed of two columns surmounted by a con necting entablature and this form persisted into the i5th century. Even the decorations painted by the artists around the edges of pictures before the intro duction of movable frames were similar in form. As a matter of fact, frames without pictures eventu ally came into existence because the desire to embel lish with mouldings was so strong. Rooms in palaces were arbitrarily panelled with mouldings and their vestigial remains are to be seen today in the senselessly panelled walls ofapartments in modern cities. Movable picture frames for easel paintings gained quickly in popularity once they were introduced. About Picture Frames sides the elaborate and intricate wood-carving, ebony, ivory, tortoise shell and mother of pearl were used for inlaid decoration. Gold, silver and every other metal have also been used for frames. With the perfection of the technique of making large sheets of glass which were in turn used to cover and protect pictures, frame-making received a big im petus in the lyth century. In the i8th century, when cheaper mirrors were introduced, frames were in greater demand than ever. This century also saw an invention that was to revolutionize the art of frame decoration that of the development of moulded composition ornaments. The use of this easily handled material, which did away with the need for laborious and expensive hand-carv ing, drove artisans to other fields. Since then, there has been no large group of wood-carvers devoted solely to frame decoration. It is interesting to note that during the Renaissance period, when movable frames were first introduced, book decoration reached its highest form. Undoubted ly, the early carvers and framers, besides using archi tectural designs, took many of their ideas from early illuminated manuscripts. The frames of the Louis periods certainly got their inspiration from typograph ical decorative motifs. Before then, architects and sculptors designed much of the scroll-work, but later goldsmiths were employed for decoration. Over-elabo ration became the order of the day until all forms were lost beneath the gingerbread. With the French revolution, people turned away from all evidences of bourgeois wealthand returned About Picture Frames to a refreshing simplicity. Until 1850 all mouldings were cut from rough boards by hand, but with the invention of laborsaving machinery, frames could be put on the market for what the raw material had cost previously. This country was fortunately spared from the use of moulded ornaments until the advent of the Victorian era...

It is not surprising that certain artists - among them Michelangelo, Ingres, Church, Degas, van Gogh, Klimt, Whistler, Matisse, Seurat, and Mondrian - designed frames for their own pictures. Klee, Miro Kahlo, Dali, Calder, and Hockney incorporated actual frames into the works themselves."--BOOK JACKET.
