Whether or not one agrees with Hughes's critique of the current art market (or that of the 1980s, when this book came out), I don't think one can find much fault with the depth and breadth of his knowledge of art history. "Nothing If Not Critical" serves as a very good survey of Western art. The book, unfortunately, has no illustrations, and a few artists whose work he didn't write essays about are probably missing, but, boy, the writing is wonderful, and Hughes's love of art is evident throughout.
