Sounding very much like Simon Cowell (b. 1960), British painter C.R.W. Nevinson (1889 - 1946) had some bitter words for the American people and the art market they created.

"Here emphatically they have lost their courage. They are afraid to buy what they like; they rely entirely on the auction-room value. To read the American art news is like reading our "Financial Times". The American art critic has no use for a picture which does not tell a story..."

Pegged as a Futurist, Nevinson is best remembered for his W.W. I paintings of the Western Front, which can be read about here.
