He is very “diplomatic” with his answers, hoping to “not step on any toes,” but he does reveal that Fan Warren’s piece is, in a way, his personal favorite. “Even Michelangelo loses his flair if you spend that much time around him… For me, because I spend so much time back here, I like [Warren’s piece] because the explanation is very short… it gives me something to think about,” he carefully explains.

To what proportion is another question.”
