ABSTRACT
An interview with writer and artist Robert Hughes is presented. When asked about the first line in his book about Frank Auerbach, he says that the career of Auerbach is not saying much about the art world. Hughes says that real art is being created, although not always in spite of the art world. He says that the book on Auerbach is the first book he has written about an artist. He adds that he was intrigued by the work of Auerbach and cannot explain it any other way but to write about it and his coming essay collection is related to the Auerbach book.
