William Holman Hunt, The awakening conscience, 1853-54, Tate. Hunt’s frame for his painting uses the uncomplicated structure of a Renaissance cassetta frame – a flat frieze between small mouldings – with an arched cuff or mount. The frieze is decorated with, according to F.G.Stephens, ‘…ringing bells, and marigolds, the emblems of warning and sorrow’, with a star in the top centre symbolizing the redeeming light which floods the painting from the reflected window.

William Holman Hunt, The hireling shepherd, 1850-51, Manchester Art Gallery. This frame has a simple convex frieze, & is both decorative and symbolic. The arrangement of naturalistic ears of wheat parodies the curving lines, corners & centres of a Rococo frame, as found on pictures of 'Dresden china bergers’ by Watteau, Boucher, & Fragonard, which Hunt mocked with his ‘real’ farmhands.

William Holman Hunt, Isabella and the pot of basil, 1866-68, Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle. This massive frame, with its heavy convex top edge – a half-round moulding decorated with flutes filled with imbricated coin ornaments – looks back to 17th C Italian and Spanish Mannerist frames, & may relate to the drawing of a frame by Hunt in the Pollitt Collection.
