Frustrated by his parents’ refusal to send his paintings to him (they claimed it was too expensive) the French impressionist painter Frederic Bazille sent word to his brother Marc. He asked him to send his paintings “wrapped around a large pole, picture side in, rolled in a layer of newspaper, then one of oilcloth or tar-lined paper”
Thankfully packaging methods have progressed since the nineteenth century. I have custom made boxes, bubble wrap and Eddie who comes to the door to pick my paintings up. The corners of the frames are protected with an extra fold of bubble wrap. The transport system is working. So far .
