I love Martina, Mama and Papa

Screen Shot 2016-01-01 at 09.44.23Dalrymple visits the Musée Guimet to view an exhibition of Korean painting and decorative arts. He writes:

I came out knowing much more than when I went in. I was moved by what I had seen and was full of resolution to read up on the subject.

As he leaves, Dalrymple glances at the visitors’ book, which contains comments such as these:

  • Necessary to clean the glass cases to protect the works. Too many fingerprints. Thank you.
  • [A note pointing to the need to make changes to the lighting and disposition of exhibits, concluding with the remark:] Ophthalmologists and osteopaths will thank the museum for its co-operation.
  • Your restaurant rather resembles that of a clinic or a hospital.
  • I love Martina, Mama and Papa. [Enclosed in a heart shape.]
