Description

Fine reverse painting creates a botanical wonderland around the frame of this mirror. In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the back of the glass. The painting is done “back to front”: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface” is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. The art of reverse painting dates to the Middle Ages.
