Why use a picture mat?

A well-chosen mat will lead the viewer’s eye to the artwork. The mat creates a neutral zone between the artwork and the frame. Sometimes, the color of the mat enhances the viewer’s experience with the artwork as the eye is drawn to a particular color. The mat can also isolate the artwork and underline the artist’s vision. This way, nothing else distracts the viewer.
