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)
