Paintings need a good frame and an appropriate wall to be appreciated. Sculptures on the other hand need to be viewed from multiple angles to truly appreciate their beauty. Whether it is a larger piece or one in need of a pedestal, think about traffic flow in a room when determining its placement. When displaying any piece of art, the right lighting is key to show off a work of art’s best attributes. Diffused light (i.e. daylight from a window) is the best for most pieces. Too much light will make the details indistinguishable, and not enough will simply hide them.
