But these days Mr. Marden feels far more akin to the spontaneity of the Abstract Expressionists. “I’m a great believer in late Jackson Pollock,” he said, showing a visitor a reproduction of “Scent,” one of Pollock’s last paintings, a dense work from 1955. “I have looked at that painting so hard I think I see things happening in it.” Faced with a barrage of international condemnation, those officers are trying to shape an explanation for the violence on June 3, portraying the raid as a moral crusade against degenerate, armed pro-democracy protesters.
But United States District Court Judge John Walter was critical of Spain, which owns the museum, noting that its position was “inconsistent” with an international agreement it had signed, the Washington Principles, that encourages governments to find “just and fair” solutions in cases where looted art is identified. School put an end to this fantasy. Throughout elementary school I stuttered every time a teacher called on me and whenever I was asked to read out loud. In the third grade the humiliation of being forced to read a few paragraphs about stewardesses in the Weekly Reader still burns. The ST is hard for stutterers.

The two embarked on a lively conversation in English, neither of their first languages, during which Mr. Céspedes, who had recently traveled to Paris, tried out his French. (“It was really bad,” Mr. Corbé admitted later.) The two eventually took the conversation to Mr. Corbé’s apartment nearby, where they played their favorite songs for each other and danced in the living room.
The relatives of the defendants who had gathered said they had no idea what was about to happen. The first hint of something wrong was when Mr. Kanakorn kicked the court reporter and other judicial officials out. He ordered a guard to lock one door. The judge locked the other and rammed a chair against it. From Ralph I learned all about craft and authenticity and an obsession with detail. People may think, “Oh, it’s just all-American and it’s WASPy,” but they don’t see the genius of his rigor, the five-hour meetings to talk about men’s wear, the way he would send us to buy Turnbull & Asser shirts and have us take them apart so we could count the number of stitches per inch in a seam.
