It's ten years today since my father died. Not something to dwell on particularly, but to mark the anniversary in a small way we visited the Courtauld Gallery. Highlights included Cranach's Desperate Housewives and Raoul Dufy's Blue Peter Design a Mural Competition Winner, 1906. And some nice Cézanne and Kandinsky. National security of course precludes disclosure of the incident involving my father, Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, the spy Anthony Blunt, and some Michelangelo drawings. At least until Dan Brown offers the family a large sum for the book rights.
