That's not an original Vettriano on the wall?

I wish. Although someone took pains to apply acrylic brush strokes to the copy to make it look like a real Vettriano.

 

The framed print to the left of it, however, is an signed Picasso lithograph from 1972.

I'd think an original would be a bit more protected or better-presented than a simple wall hanging.

Not for a man who lives without speaker grills!

I honestly like art without frames. The style of the frame often detracts (IMO) from the art itself. I love unframed canvas on walls.

Man, I think I've seen this (awesome) setup elsewhere, or maybe it's just the speakers. Either way, do you write a blog/run a review website?

I just realized that I embody both of these. Crap.

 

I keep my Missions uncovered a lot of the time because they simply look imposing (though they're just aging monitors that were good values at the time), and I have only two or three framed pieces of art out of the half-dozen in my listening room. Most of them are originals.

Used to be fun with the Royd or Rega speakers to run em with grills off. People freaked when they saw there were no dust caps on the drivers:)

 

Depending on the decor, I found I preferred art put on just a plain black backboard rather than frame. Delineates the art from the room without causing the eye to wander off to a frame.

Honestly the fact I like my Harbeths grill on instead of off bugs me. Lol. I usually like my speakers naked.

Naked Royd Edens blink.gif I usually run with grills because the grill fasteners blobs are so ugly:

Mys LS3/5a and most art remain framed and grilled. This is a little Magritte print over the Rogers. Like the speakers you risk damage if not properly cared for and used.

I remember the very first time I laid eyes on a pair of gorgeous Klipschorn & La Scala speakers... no need for them to be dressed or naked really. normal_smile%20.gif
