There is no reason why people should not call themselves Cubists,
or Octagonists, or Parallelopipedonists,
orKnights oftheIsoscelesTriangle, or Brothers of the
Cosine, if they so desire; as expressing anything serious
and permanent, one term is as fatuous as another. Theodore Roosevelt His opinion on the International Exhibition of
Modern Art in NewYork, popularly
known asTheArmoury Show.'A Layman's Views of an Art
Exhibition', in The Outlook (9 Mar).
