Gene Davis, Triple Jump, 1962, oil and magna on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum
Doing a little research, I learned that a conservator, Amber Kerr, performed some restorative work to prepare Davis' Triple Jump for exhibition. I hadn't even thought about how that kind of work might be needed on a piece like this until it dawned on me that, yeah, this work really is now more than 50-years old. Duh! To put it in even greater perspective, 1962 was the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
