Is the frame included?
Ultimately, it depends on the agreement or sales details, however generally speaking it’s like this:
Oil portraits: The frame in not included in the quoted price. I can purchase a frame for the client or work with them to choose a frame at additional cost.
Charcoal portraits: The frame is included in the quoted price unless specified otherwise. For charcoal drawings, I prefer to include a standard mat and frame. This way the delicate drawing is protected and can be enjoyed immediately. Of course, the client may always choose to reframe later if they like.
Gallery Paintings: Usually include a frame. The sales post should say either way.
