Officially the largest paintings I’ve photographed on location. This project was to photograph 3 Larry Rivers’ paintings pulled out of storage, temporarily unrolled and stretched for conservation. The largest of the group was 10ft. high by 15ft. long.
Photography was done on location in the closed Trumbull gallery at the Yale University Art Gallery. We had just enough room for the lights. Strobe lighting allowed me to circumvent the skylights overhead. The second image here shows the back of my camera with an image stitching attachment. Each painting was photographed in three incrementally shifted frames stitched together in post production.
Thank you to the helpful art handlers on hand and museum collections staff.
