"Renown custom frame shops fight the recession with creativity and ingenuity."
We at Westchester Framing and Art have decided not to take the recession sitting down. Believing slower sales are not inevitable, we have been proactive and confident that sales growth is possible even within a retail recession.
Over the years we have built a strong, loyal customer base that includes a substantial number of interior decorators. With this in mind, it has been our goal to discover a special element that combines both great design and great art, giving our sophisticated clientele the choice to decorate their homes with something truly special.
Thus our custom framing business has expanded into a one of a kind art gallery devoted to original and vintage magazine covers spanning the 1920's to the 1950's.
Our galleries are selling chic and trend setting original and vintage stunning Vogue, New Yorker, Vanity Fair and Harper's Bazaar Magazine covers.
These illustrated magazine covers are not only beautiful but also witty and historically significant. You will be amazed by our collection of rare and precious art.
Designer custom framing created by the best customer framers in Westchester surrounds the original magazine covers. You will discover at Framing at Depot Place and Chappaqua Framing priceless looking works of art by great artist of their time.
Artist such as Salvador Dali, Erte Di Chirico and Barbier are a few of the great magazine cover illustrators. Our collection dates mostly from the 1920's through the 1940's though we have new Yorkers from a later date.
Many people are buying print copies of Vogue, New Yorker, Vanity Fair and Harper's Bazaar Magazines. We now have the originals available that will only increase in value through the years?
We have a large selection of fashion covers. In addition we have recently acquired a 1933 Vanity Fair Magazine with a great caricature of Babe Ruth swinging a bat and standing over a baseball field. For lovers of Erte we have a 1935 magazine cover by the artist. Our oldest New Yorker magazine is the third issue. Its' cover is an orange graphic of New York City. A personal favorite of our designers is a 1933 Vanity Fair cover with NYC in the background and dinosaurs in the foreground.
We have an excellent selection of original vintage Vogue Magazine covers. Vogue is arguably the worlds most influential and the most illustrious fashion magazine in history. The art works from the authentic covers of Vogue are magnificent to view. Each cover created by renowned artists of the century tells its own story of the passage of time from vogues inception, twelve decades to the present.
Our French fashion prints from the Gazette Bon Ton will take your breath away. The Gazette was the most influential European and Paris fashion magazine of its time, setting many of the new trends in fashion during the dynamic period from 1912-1930. Marketed toward the Paris elite, these prints of exclusive trend setting fashion appeared in limited additions. Eventually the Gazette was purchased by Vogue Magazine.
Many museums are collectors of the Gazette's prints with their beautiful colors produced by a hand coloring process called pochoir; providing exquisite fashion plates in limited editions.
New Yorker Magazine is perhaps the most prestigious award winning of all publications. It is well known for its great magazine covers designed by talented illustrators of its time.
Several recent magazine acquisitions that we love are a 1933 Vanity Fair Magazine with a great caricature of Babe Ruth swinging a bat and standing over a baseball field.
