Henry Moore, the eminent British sculptor—

[While studying painting at the Royal College of Art in 1921-24, one of his teachers was Arthur Beresford Pite, Professor of Architecture, who one day] arrived in front of my painting and for several minutes spotlighted his violent dislike of it. "This student, he said, "has been feeding on garbage." 

That Friday afternoon I could not work, but wandered around Hyde Park to work off my hurt feelings. I almost decided I would leave the college and study on my own.
