'Bendor the Just'

January 26 2015

Now, I've been summoned for jury service here in Edinburgh, so no blogging today alas - and if I get a three year fraud case, not for a wee while, either. 

In the meantime, feast your eyes on a piece I wrote for the weekend Financial Times on museum leadership in light of the new National Gallery appointment. Still not many women directors, and no Americans either...

Update - my name was not drawn in the ballot, and, luckily (as it was slated to be a two week case), I was allowed to go. 

Update II - a reader writes:

Are you sure you haven't been caught with a Van Dyck or two under the bed!

Never a good place to keep pictures, under the bed.
