Cubists and Post-impressionism
Arthur Jerome Eddy
Excerpt: "Since the exhibit at the Columbian Exposition (1893) nothing has happened in the world of American art so stimulating as the recent INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF MODERN ART. New York and Chicago, spring of 1913. “Stimulating” is the word, for while the recent exhibition may have lacked some of the good, solidly painted pictures found in the earlier, it contained so much that was fresh, new, original—eccentric, if you prefer—that it gave our art-world food for thought—and heated controversy. Art thrives on controversy—like every human endeavour. The fiercer the controversy the surer, the sounder, the saner the outcome."
