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.
