In this video, we travel behind the scenes to see how the National Gallery of Canada installed The Poem of the Vine (1877–82), a bronze sculpture by Gustave Doré measuring four metres in height and weighing 2.7 tonnes, on loan from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Towards the end, Paul Lang, Chief Curator at the National Gallery, explains how the sculpture tells the story of French wine.
