Robert Hughes R.I.P

 "Apart from drugs-art, is the biggest unregulated market in the world"

I just discovered Robert Hughes has gone. The last dissenting voice on the quagmire that is the con of contemporary Art.
I still have Shock of the New on my book shelf, and on days when I am feeling utterly futile,(usually when Hirst or Emin's name appear in the news) I fall back on my Youtube stalwart-The Mona Lisa Curse-for solace. That withering stare, that chuckle of contempt, as he eviscerates a Warhol pack rat...Artists, curators, patrons seek it out Here
