Anne Rosenthal, Tony Rockwell and I conserved a near 2,000 lb
painting by Jay DeFeo using a custom designed composite support
adapted from the air plane industry.  You can review that design by
looking at an article from our talk at the AIC Paintings session in
1997 which was printed in the Paintings Specialty Group Postprints.
