Art Capital – Salon des artistes Indépendants, 2018
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 “Tangazo” (100 cm X 81 cm) of 2016, is part of a series of paintings inspired by the theme of Argentine Tango.
