'There is another curious way in which they differ- namely in their dress. For whereas the new Bohemian is generally as 'mondain' and smart, if a little fantastic, as he or she can be, this little phalanstery of apes of god went the length of actually dressing the part of the penniless 'genius'. In this way they presented the curious spectacle of a lot of men and women, possessed of handsome bank balances, drifting and moping about in the untidiest fashion. This rather scandalous shabbiness it was, besides a queer exaggeration of speech that cut them off from the outside world. They yield to none, however, in their organized hatred of living'genius'. Even they have made a sort of cult of the amateur- the child artist- and in short any imperfectly equipped person.'
Wyndham Lewis, 'The Encyclical' from The Apes of God
