1. The Installation of The Rose from an Art Handler’s PerspectiveBy Graham Miles, Whitney art handler Documented by Paula Court, photographer VI. “As the height of The Rose is close to the maximum height of the gantry, several sheets of plywood are placed under the gantry to ensure that there is enough clearance from the top of the painting to the gantry’s I-beam. Two holes have also been cut into the walls that mirror the footprint of the gantry’s A-frame legs. This allows the gantry to be pushed back inside the wall and means that The Rose can sit flush against the wall, while still on the gantry.”Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective is on view now through June 2.
