I always like seeing how the press photograph Old Masters coming up at auction. Sometimes, you get photos of a porter pretending to hold the painting up with white gloves. More usually, a young lovely from the department is drafted in to 'admire' the painting; in this case a Rembrandt coming up tonight at Christie's, estimate £8m-£12m.
