My Rembrandt (2)

    The art world, especially the nexus between ‘the trade’ and scholarship, doesn’t take kindly to being publicly shown up, especially by those somehow deemed to be outside the system. It can be needlessly snobbish, pompous, conservative, closed-minded, and much else. If Jan did anything wrong, it was to underestimate that.
