September 14, 2009—When lying flat on a table, larger works on paper can be a bit cumbersome to view. So today, post-baccalaureate curatorial fellow Katrina Greene was excited to test one of the study room's new table easels. She decided to look at The Cheshire Cheese, a particularly large pen and ink drawing by Joesph Pennel. First impressions? Not only do the new table easels make the viewing experience easier and more enjoyeable, by eliminating the need to lean over the table, they also keep the works out of harm's way from say... enthusiastically-tossed eyeglasses?
