The Salon des Refusés and the Revolutionary Movement that Gave the World Impressionism


Exhibition of Rejects

Salon des Refusés was an exhibition of works rejected by the jury of the official Paris Salon. It was opened after the jury refused 2/3 of the presented works. This started a protest, following which the Emperor decided they should be displayed elsewhere. The exhibition brought in more than a thousand visitors per day.
