"Le Pont Sur Le Torrent," by Hubert Robertís

Outside my period I know, but who could resist this picture.
Simon Parkes, third from left, owner of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, and his associates lift the oil painting "Le Pont Sur Le Torrent," by Hubert Robertís off the ground, in New York. The 20 feet wide and 13 feet tall painting originally commissioned circa 1780 and formerly owned by newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst will be on public view from January 23rd through the 28th at Christie's New York and be sold on the 27th.

This is one huge piece. I wonder how many people it took to actually stretch the canvas so it won't buckle.
