Hanging a 17th century painting in West Sussex

Our clients had moved into their new home in West Sussex over a year ago before they asked us in to hang all of their paintings, pictures and mirrors. This photo shows the small works we hung on the stairs as well as a large 17th century painting by (infamous) Italian painter, Agostino Tassi. The Tassi was installed high above the stairs on old plaster and lathe walls so the utmost care was taken to ensure the wall was capable of holding the painting! We installed multiple fixings into the wall and the back of the frame to spread the load across the old plaster, and went as far as inserting rapid-hardening filler into the wall around each fixing to ensure they had plenty to grip onto.
