Excerpt from For and Against: Views on the International Exhibition Held in New York and Chicago

When the Association of American Painters and Sculptors was formed in the early part of 1912 there was some discussion as to the sort of exhibition which it should organize. As a result of a talk of a number of men around a dinner table, it was decided that the most useful and necessary thing was to display French and American works together. The original idea was to obtain a few European paintings and sculptures, but, later on, this was changed and a real and comprehensive international exhibition was decided upon.

Mr. Davies, who had charge of the work of selecting the foreign exhibits, proposed to make the things shown indicate the line of development from the early part of the last century until the present day. All of the mas ters selected, big or little, represented some definite breach with accepted authority and tradition, from Ingres to the Impressionists, from the Impressionists to Cézanne, and from Cézanne to the Cubists.
