Chicago attorney Arthur Jerome Eddy (1859-1920) was the boldest buyer at the Armory Show, purchasing eighteen paintings and seven lithographs. Although collector John Quinn surpassed him in total number of purchases, Eddy’s acquisitions reflected his adventurous spirit, as he bought works by the most radical artists on display, including Marcel Duchamp, Albert Gleizes, Francis Picabia, and Jacques Villon: http://armory.nyhistory.org/buying-bold-arthur-jerome-eddy-at-the-armory-show/
