1. The Installation of The Rose from an Art Handler’s PerspectiveBy Graham Miles, Whitney art handler Documented by Paula Court, photographer II. “Shackles are attached to the top of the steel sub-frame, so the painting can be lifted from the metal A-frame cart and set down on the floor. The restrictive size of the Whitney’s elevators necessitates the use of this cart. If the painting were to ride flat on its back—instead of on its edge—it would not fit into either the freight or large passenger car.” Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective is on view now through June 2.
