In this second introduction to an exhibition catalog of the Redfern Gallery in London (the earlier one for an exhibition of Pointillists), Bates notes that "one cannot help feeling, that l'epoque 1900 had more elegance, enchantment and a sheer unashamed sense of pleasure than our own."

In words similar to those in the earlier exhibit catalog preface, he notes that most of the painters, English or French, are little known and that the exhibit therefore offers the "pleasures of discovery."

In Plaisirs de l'epoque 1900 (Redfern Gallery, 1954).
