How do you hang pictures on marble walls? This drawing shows the system used at the Miller House. Fitted between the steel beam and the marble wall, the aluminum bar had a wire that passed through it from which the picture was hung. After Monet’s Waterlillies (1919) fell , a heavier wire was used to rehang the painting.
