Robert Hughes

Robert Hughes is an australian writer and art critic. He is an erudite in art history as one can see in that collection of essays "Nothing if not critical", where he also exposes the "mad honeymoon that followed the marriage of art and financial speculation" at the end of the XXth century.
His memoir starts with the description of a bloody, near fatal car crash he sufered in Autralia in 1999. In the following months he spent in the hospital, he says sometimes he had nightmares in spanish! His books are realy worth reading.
On youtube you can watch some interviews with him, and most of his series made for tv.
