More than a 100 year history of Salon d’Automne in Paris – it’s art history of the XXth century. Salon always discovered new names, introduced new esthetic searches in different paths of art and the works of artists from various countries, among which always were many Russians.
In 1906 Salon d’Automne introduced “Exhibition of Russian art”, which was prepared by Diagilev. This event opened new era in the development of cultural relations between Russia and France. For many years Salon d’Automne has become an event particularly attractive to Russian artists. The majority of works in French collections of Morozov and Shukina have been purchased at the Salon d'Automne.
