Moving a Schnabel from the Netherlands to Italy (and back)

Image from the Stedelijk Museum Journal 
This very informative and also entertaining video shows the journey of Julian Schnabel's 1981  ‘The unexpected death of Blinky Palermo in the tropics  from the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) to Museo Correr (Venice), to be part of a Schnabel retrospective. 

The painting was packed in a wooden crater, which was watertight, equipped with shock absorbers, climate control, air suspension systems and what not! 

Read the details on the Stedelijk Museum Journal. Thanks, Jen Bosworth, for showing this to me!
