Reader Fred Bancroft has made my day with this photo. 

If Van Dyck had lived in the 1980s, he'd have definitely had a Jag like this.

Sotheby's Institute have launched a new one-year art business course in partnership with the Drucker School of Management in Los Angeles; price, $75,000. To find out if it's worth it, read my latest article in The Art Newspaper.

For those with a smaller budget, Sotheby's Institute have London-based courses for about £20,000. 

Update - a reader writes:

Great "high flier" article in "Comment" (just saw it this morning). You raise a great point, which anyone who has taught at Sotheby's Institute (I have occasionally) will have noted. Most of the students come from wealthy backgrounds. If a master's in art business becomes the entry requirement in the art world, it is being restricted to a very narrow segment of society.

 I too would take the Spitfire.
