Nice one, Vladimir

Russian Flag over the Hermitage
It's good to know that somebody can read Coxsoft Art Blog, even though I can't read it myself! At the start of the State Hermitage Museum scandal, I criticized President Vladimir Putin for failing to protect his country's treasures - the first job of any head of state - and called upon him to resign (click the title link). He has now ordered the setting up of a commission by 1 September to check the whereabouts of 50 million artworks held in Russian museums. Wow! This is going to be bigger than the Domesday Book. I take it all back, Vladimir. And thank you for reading Coxsoft Art Blog.
