And about the exhibition at the UK gallery. Was there no concern that no other item would be put up on it? What about proper customs clearance in the UK? Did you do it on your own with a carnet?

The large size is problematic— so why not have a professional art packing and shipping company take care of it? I have not had great luck with having things sent from UPS stores when buying things at regional auction houses.
It's a show at a museum, so she's probably responsible for getting her pieces to where they need to be.
