Robert Amos, a writer and artist, has been the art writer for the Victoria Times Colonist since 1986 and has published eight books on art. Following Hughes’ death in 2007, Robert Amos was entrusted with the papers collected by Hughes’ long-time associate and biographer, Pat Salmon. Drawing on this archive, and with the cooperation of the Estate of E. J. Hughes, he has created this book to introduce this very private artist to a much wider public.
