Society of Salon d'Automne 

In 1903, the Salon d’Automne was created in the basement of the Petit Palais, where, in reaction to the academism in place at the time, several friends gathered around the architect Frantz Jourdain, including Guimard, Carrière, Desvallières, Bonnard, Rouault, Vallotton, Vuillard, Matisse, and many others. They decided to organize an independent exhibition to promote the avant-garde and the innovative ideas of their time. Championing the concept of multi-disciplinary and equality in the arts, the Salon d’Automne was born.

From 1904, following the success of the first exhibition, this young salon has since been hosted in the glass and metal structure of the Grand Palais. In 1905, it witnessed Fauvisms spectacular beginning, a major art scandal at that time.

As the years passed, the Salon d’Automne precipitated the emergence of all the major artistic trends of the 20th century: Surrealism, Cubism, Abstraction, New Figuration, and Singular Art. It includes all the greatest names in modern painting, from Cézanne to Picasso, the Paris School, Dali, Zao Wou Ki and Antonio Manfredi (2014) or Moebius (2015).
