Salon des independants


See Societe des Artistes Independants<br><br>An annual art exhibition held in Paris by the Soci?t? des Artistes Ind?pendents ? a group of painters, including Georges Seurat (French, 1859-1891), Paul Signac (French, 1863-1935), and Odilon Redon (French, 1840-1916). Seurat and Signac were the principal founders of the society, which was formed in 1884 following the rejection of their work by the selection committee at the official Salon held by the Acad?mie des Beaux-Arts. Their Salon had no selection committee and the rules allowed any artist to enter a painting on payment of a fee. The society lasted until the beginning of World War I.Also see Neo-Impressionism.
