Burning Art

This is greatly saddening. I heard on the news that some of the works of Patrick Heron (late father of a friend of mine) have been lost, as well as works held there for the National and Tate Gallerys. Much has been made of the losses from Saatchi's collection but I fear the devastation may be further reaching than that.
