Abstract

A painting of "Albano, Italy" by George Inness in the Art Museum, Princeton University, was found upon examination to be painted on a plywood panel manufactured by E. French of New York City around 1880. A brief history of the development of plywood is presented. The Inness painting is one of the earliest examples of this type of support, which dates to shortly after 1880.
