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 January 30, 2018.
