In fact, when the Meiji Dynasty came to power and the samurai fell out of the ruling class, many of them turned to working as knitters as their techniques were considered superior to others.

“Cubism is no different from any other school of painting. The same principles and the same elements are common to all. The fact that for a long time cubism has not been understood and that even today there are people who cannot see anything in it, means nothing. I do not read English, and an English book is a blank to me. This does not mean that the English language does not exist, and why should I blame anyone but myself if I cannot understand what I know nothing about?” 
— Picasso
