"I don't think anyone is to blame for the stagnation of the last century, but that it is the natural condition of ebb and flow in the tides of mens affairs. I believe that we must go back again to the simplicity of line, of form, and of spirit, in giving pleasure in our work. If this object is unattempted and unaccomplished... then the world will be so much poorer by ignoring, not only the art of the plasterer, but all the lesser arts."
George Bankart, The Art of the Plasterer, 1908.
