It was Jörg Schmeisser’s funeral in Canberra today. How sad we all are.
Our thoughts have naturally been with the family; he really was one of Art’s true gentlemen.
[It’s a shock when one of your heroes goes. We’re going to miss that glowing Jörg Schmeisser ‘ochre red’ – Megsie used to dye her hair precisely that colour in a gesture of serious homage. n(Ed)]
