View our Classical range of reverse painted Mirror Frames from Peru, exclusive to Hadeda.
The ancient technique of reverse paintings originated in Medieval Europe and arrived in Peru with the Spanish in the 16th Century.
Reverse-glass painting is a technique whereby an image is layered on a sheet of glass in reverse order: final details are painted first, the background is added last, and the finished artwork is then viewed from its unpainted side.
Reverse painting is a skill that requires precision, as the visual surface is painted first then layered over.
