Salon des artistes Indépendants, Cannes-Croisettes 2017
La Société des Artistes Indépendants will be showing for a first time in Cannes-Croisettes in the Salon du Vieux Port in June 23-25, 2017
Artistic independence since 1884
La Société des Artistes Indépendants was founded in 1884 as a counterweight to the “official” Salon d’Automne. In the latter prominent personalities constituted a jury for the selection of artists and their works. The independents did away with a jury and it was the artists themselves who decided what was to be exposed. According to the French painter Fernand Léger, “It is above all a painters´salon for the painters”.
My painting to be exposed in the forthcoming Salon, the “Danseuse” (100 cm X 81 cm) of 2015, is part of a series of paintings inspired by the theme of Argentine Tango.
