I love the vigour that Hughes brings to his criticisms, you feel like you're really reading someone that knows his stuff. It's a great way to pick-up insights about artists, and their work, that you may have missed yourself. Nevertheless, given the format (from Time magazine) the essays eventually become somewhat 'one-note.' His feelings about the New York art world start to become repetitive, and his sentences, whilst sometimes very clever, run on way too much.
