Salon art exhibits began in France in the 17th century and featured
works by leading artists of the time. The paintings in these salon
exhibitions were hung from floor to ceiling in the gallery. Between
1748 and 1890, the Salon de Paris was considered the greatest annual
art event in the Western world. Sponsored by the Academie Royale and
Ecole des Beaux Arts, the Salon de Paris was open to all artists to
apply. Later in the 19th century, other competing organizations created
their own exhibitions that were also called salons. All would feature a
variety of works hung to fill the gallery walls from high to low. Be
sure to visit Art: Salon-style
in the Tower Gallery at New Hampshire Antique Co-op for a modern
take on this centuries-old tradition, on view from November 24, 2017
through March 11, 2018.
