Marie Lhomet/Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts
The Société Nationale des Beaux Arts is an artist association created by Théophile Gautier in 1861, in breaking with the official Salon. The idea was and still is « to make art independent and teach to artists how to make their own business », words of Gautier himself. It had among its members Eugène Delacroix, Édouard Manet, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, or even Suzanne Valadon: she was indeed the first to accept women under their own name. Recognized in the public interest since 1909, it works every year to promote french and foreign artists by enabling them to make themselves known to the public and professionals.
2020’s exhibition, postponed three times because of pandemic, will be held since May to July in three different times, places, historic and central districts of the capital.
