Robert Hughes...Interesting people dropping like flies

I missed this: Robert Hughes has died.

I loved "The Shock of the New." It was witty, acerbic, brilliant. And so was Hughes.

Hughes' take down of Andy Warhol in the NY Review of Books was a classic. Hughes knew how to smash the phoniness in the art world without being anti-intellectual. That was a rare gift in the world of artists and art critics.

He is already missed.
