Clifford\'s travels

Sir Timothy Clifford has no difficulty these days in turning up important works that other curators and directors do not know to be under their noses. News that Sir Tim, while flicking through the bundles in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence, chanced upon two Michelangelo sketches reputedly worth similar amounts, has now decided the sketches of eagles are not Michelangelo but are by Parmigiano. Museums may be less enthusiastic in future about letting the infamous art sleuth loose on their bundles. Sir Tim has an unfailing eye for curatorial vagaries. It is possible that his next stop may be Los Angeles and the Getty Museum or else, significantly, not.
