The Man Who Rewrote Art History

“Hugh Honour, a self-taught art historian who produced indispensable works on Neo-Classicism and romanticism and who, with John Fleming, wrote the monumental survey ‘The Visual Arts: A History,’ one of the first to pay serious attention to non-Western art, died on May 19 at his home in Tofori, Italy. He was 88.”
