Excerpt from The Studio, Vol. 57: An Illustrated Magazine of Fine and Applied Art; October 15, 1912
There is, in a word, no room in the ranks of the decorators for the man ofmerelyaverage capabilities. The artist who is by no means a consummate craftsman and who has only mode... rate powers of expression can often score a great popular success through the accident of a telling subject - many a poorly painted picture has brought fame to its producer because he has chanced to hit upon a motive which has pleased the crowd. But the decorator has not the opportunity of glossing over imperfections of practice by hiding behind a popular subject; he makes his success or his failure by the use of his own capacities only, and he depends upon himself alone for the position he takes in his profession. It is this that causes the art of decoration to be more exacting than any other form of artistic expression and that obliges the men who follow it to acquire a more than ordinarily complete mastery over its complicated technicalities.
