R.I.P., Robert Hughes

The Australian-born art critic, historian and TV documentary maker died on Monday at age 74. The New York Times offers a lengthy obit of Hughes, whose books included The Shock of the New, The Fatal Shore and last year’s Rome: A Cultural, Visual and Personal History. Meanwhile, The New Yorker Web site carries Adam Gopnik’s ode to one of the “few critics whose work can be read for style alone.”
