I saw this statement on an art website and it got me to thinking ....

"Every great art movement is the story of small groups of visionaries working together to change the system.

In 1867, Claude Monet saw that the fine art business was tilted against artists who were doing original, innovative work. He got together with then-unknown artists like Degas, Manet, and others to put on their own show, outside the French Academy, and it was a huge success, birthing Impressionism.

This story of artists forging their own paths has happened over and over again. From the Young British Artists, to the New York Armory show to Gertrude Stein and Picasso, artists find a way to lead into the next movement of history."
