Danestress Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 I lack an eye for this kind of thing. I am going to attach a (not very good) photo of the painting. It's actually 100 paintings framed together. My DH spent over a year on this, so it's beloved. I am also going to attach a photo of the wall. The ceiling is 9 feet but that includes hefty crown molding. The table is 40 inches high, so highish. The painting itself is about 42 square. So I am trying to decide how many inches above the table the bottom of the painting should be. In other words, what clearance. If I wanted the middle of the painting to be at eye level for an average man, I would need the middle of the painting to be about 65 inches. That would put the bottom edge of the painting only about 4 inches above the top of the table. The bottom photo is a mock up using paper for the painting (the painting is actually wider than the paper, but it's accurate for height). It is hung with the bottom about 8 inches above the table. I think that looks too high. But if I ever want to put anything on the table, it will block part of the painting. Which may be ok. Or not? I guess I would love to know what others think about how high to hang this. It's REALLY heavy, so we need to get it right the first time.
