Art Critic

Above is what I imagine to be an excerpt from a larger video on the end-stage Robert Hughes (1938-2012), whose art criticism appeared in print and on TV. While I have laughed out loud at some of his pronouncements, as well as marvelled at his prose, Hughes was a connoisseur who, through his force of personality, saw no problem conflating the personality of the artist with his or her work (an example of which can be found in Hughes's almost child-like assessment of Warhol).
