Omigoodness what a loss. I am so sorry and such a wonderful piece of art.
That is truly heartrending! I have, fortunately, never had that happen but it is always a fear at the back on ones mind. What happened? Did you have it packed by UPS? I often use AirFloat boxes and not even glass framed works have been hurt. This is a beautiful painting and a very sad loss.
Karen, I have no idea who packed the painting. It is being returned from a gallery. Apparently a fork lift went through the painting. Nope, not even the high dollar Air Float will stop a fork lift
