Passepartouts from museum cardboard. In the past and today.
Mounts can take on a wide variety of cutouts. Whether round, angular, oval or in a completely different form - with Passepartouts of HALBE-rahmen.de you have the free choice. In the 19th century it was not uncommon for passe-partouts to be decorated and painted with hand-painted ornaments and various patterns. This trend is less evident today. Passepartouts currently have mostly bright colours such as old white, natural white, optically lightened white tones similar to an offset paper or light gray. But the colour black is also represented. One would like to prevent the attention of the viewer from being distracted from the picture with discreet, plain passepartouts. Elaborate ornamentation and the use of different colours used to be intended to support the decorative aspect of a passepartout. Today,uni-coloured mounts are largely used. They put the focus on the picture and create another layer.
In addition, mounts are important when a distance between the picture and the glass is important for the preservation of the picture or painting. This is the case with watercolors, for example. With the help of a passepartout, the glass pane does not lie directly on the painting, but on the passepartout. This minimizes the risk of damage due to the permanent contact between the glass and the painting. More information about passepartouts from HALBE-frames.
