And in other news… It’s very strange to see someone you’ve met being interviewed about an international art theft. We met Van Gogh museum director John Leighton in October 2001 when we were in Amsterdam for the opening of The Photograph and the American Dream at the Van Gogh Museum. He was generous and soft-spoken, I imagine this is close to the worst thing that can happen to you as the director of an art museum (unfortunately, I can think of worse).
