The late, great art critic Robert Hughes, on the cyclic mania of the art world:

As the body is resurrected, it is gloriously transfigured. Theology teaches us this and art history confirms it. Minor works become major ones; major ones, masterpieces; and masterpieces are rendered almost invisible by the effulgent aura of their value.

    This was my first news that Hughes had died. God, another redwood has fallen.
