An international conference of museum professionals held in Madrid in 1934 revealed an overwhelming consensus in favor of isolating works of art for purely visual consumption. Three years later at the Exposition Internationale in Paris an exhibition displaying the latest trends in museum design noted the movement towards viewing art as an "autonomous, individual [and] purely formal" phenomenon: The modern sensibility, no longer seeking in a work of art an historical witness but an individual aesthetic phenomenon, has led museums to efface themselves behind the masterpieces they display.
