Jean Metzinger, 29 May   Kazimir MalevichBlack Square,oil on canvas, Tretyakov GalleryMoscow  Metzinger's then audacious prediction that artists would take abstraction to its logical conclusion by vacating representational subject matter entirely and returning to what Metzinger calls the "primordial white unity", a "completely white canvas" would be realized two years later.

Also taking exception to this claim was Clement Greenberg himself; in his postscript to his essay Modernist Painting he disavowed this incorrect interpretation of what he said; Greenberg wrote: There have been some further constructions of what I wrote that go over into preposterousness: That I regard flatness and the inclosing of flatness not just as the limiting conditions of pictorial art, but as criteria of aesthetic quality in pictorial art; that the further a work advances the self-definition of an art, the better that work is bound to be.Students may opt to study an additional sciences, individuals and societies, or languages course, instead of a course in the arts.
