Art Upside Down

It was on this day in 1961 that Matisse's Le Bateau went on display in New York's Museum of Modern Art. Forty-seven days later, someone noticed that the picture was hanging upside down. An isolated incident? Far from it - check this. The George Baselitz exhibtion at the Tate must have been a nightmare to hang...
