But that’s what exhibitions were for : to say something new, and say it eloquently. Society was for saying something old — predictable, throwaway, offhand — which would not startle the auditor. (ONLY SAVAGES BLURTED OUT WHAT THEY FELT.) Exhibitions were for saying — I confess, I admit, I must avow. Exhibitions took a long time to arrive, which encouraged their recipients to hope that in the meantime the artist’s misfortunes had eased.1
