I am very upset to learn out of the blue of the death of Philip Hewat-Jaboor, who we got to know in the 1980s through the artist, Philip Core. He was a collector who was passionately knowledgeable about porphyry and chaired the Masterpiece Art Fair with intelligence and aplomb. He lived in Jersey. I realise that I actually don’t know much about him, except that there was something interesting about him: a sense of cosmopolitan interests and fastidious expertise, which is evident in his entry for The Aesthete in the Weekend FT (https://www.ft.com/content/fe530cdb-72f7-48f0-af77-e1708da2c82a). He was a real aesthete.
