By complete coincidence, three very large ships were recently at anchor in the paintings conservation studio. Tied up at the far right, the Crawford returned from being loaned out last year, and needed a little remedial treatment. At anchor in the center, the painting by Duveneck has just docked so it can be cleaned for an upcoming exhibition. And finally, on the left, the marina by Schofield, full of ocean liners, tugboats and sailing ships, is in the lab for treatment while its frame is off-site being conserved.
