Artful Tom: "Have you paid for that thing?"

Thomas Hoving has been serialising his memoir (Artful Tom) on Artnet. It includes his reaction to seeing the Getty Kouros: "Have you paid for that thing?"

He also recalls his role in the return of the Sarpedon (Euphronios) krater with his advice to the Italian authorities: "Don’t be too harsh on the Met."
