I think this entry needs to be restructured. For besides the officiel "Salon" in 1890 the "Salon au Champ de Mars" was created; this was the first "Secession" and the base of all further "Secessions" in Europe, indeed. But already in 1884 the "Société des Artists Indépendants" had been established in Paris - for a while highly important, and this society is still existing and based at the Grand Palais in Paris, like the "Société des Salons d'Automne". --wunny 00:52, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

The Jury System[edit]

Does anyone know more about how the jury worked? The article states that they were awarded artists, but I am curious about the criteria used for judging, and who exactly these people were. Any help would be appreciated. Birdlip (talk) 12:48, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Present status?[edit]

The article says, "From 1881 onward, it has been organized by the Société des Artistes Français;" which suggests that the Salon is still being organized; but the rest of the article treats it in the past tense, and says nothing about it after the early 20th C. If the Salon is still going, that should be made clear, and something should be said about its current activities. If not, then the article should relate what became of it.
