Remembering Robert Hughes

Email a Friend

Robert Hughes brought great gusto and eloquence to the craft of art criticism.  The native Australian could be scathing in his opinions, saying the art world had "finally turned into a kind of entropic, institutionalized parody of its old self.”  He just died August 6, at the age of 74. You can hear his interview with Leonard from 2006, when he described his life before, and after, a traumatic car crash in 1999, from which he’d never quite recovered.
