Robert Hughes

So soon after the death of Gore Vidal, we have the death of another contrarian Robert Hughes. The Shock of the New was one of the first TV programmes that really struck a chord with me. So opinionated. So sure. So right. He was a brilliant broadcaster and writer.

His history of convict transport to Australia, The Fatal Shore is a true masterwork of history.
