3 Educationalists disregard, both in their books and in their schools, the origin and purpose of the objects in museums; they use them as the basis of their courses and urge on their pupils to outdo examples already exceptional of their kind, thus encouraging them to fill our lives with the impractical showpieces with clutter and distort our existence. Le Corbusier, Decorative Art Today, 1925.
