"All the arts in America are a gigantic racket run by unscrupulous men for unhealthy women"

- Thomas Beecham

About this Quote

In this quote, Thomas Beecham is expressing his belief that the arts industry in America is corrupt and controlled by dishonest guys who accommodate the desires of unhealthy women. He suggests that the arts, which are often viewed as a symbol of elegance and refinement, have been lowered to a profitable plan run by unscrupulous people. Beecham's usage of the word "racket" indicates that the arts are being made use of for personal gain instead of being valued for their real worth. Furthermore, his reference of "unhealthy females" recommends that these people are not genuine patrons of the arts, but rather seeking superficial enjoyments. In general, Beecham's quote highlights the unfavorable elements of the arts industry in America and the damaging impacts it has on both the art itself and those included.
