Classical Studio Easels come in either H frames or A frames.

Why H-Frame?

H-Frame are sturdy and solid due to their rectangular frame and rectangular bases. Some models are appropriate for very large canvases. Some H-Frame easels will allow a forward tilt, and some have crank adjustments (See Richeson Lyptus® Wood Santa Fe II at left) and multiple paint tray features that give artist the flexibility to work large or small on the same easel. Many types of H-Frame easels can be knocked down for easy storage and transport, but please note they are heavier and clumsier in their collapsed state than A-Frame and Single-Mast easels.

Why A-Frame?
A-Frame easels use their triangular support to provide a stable base for your painting.
These easels are commonly referred to also as Lyre easels. Most versions of this easel can be stored flat. They normally do not allow for a forward tilt at the top of the painting, although some of the "adjustable" lyres will sometimes allow some vertical tilt for pastel work. Canvas size can be somewhat limited compared to an H-Frame easel. The design of this easel, with a single leg in the back, allows you to use it in a corner or in tight spaces.
