Product description


'Mainardi's The End of the Salon is important as a rare attempt to shift our attention from the independent commercial exhibitions, whence emerged the now canonised avantgarde, back to the establishment against which they appeared to rebel ... Mainardi's text is well-conceived and admirably researched ...' Arts Review

Book Description

This 1993 text examines the cultural forces that contributed to the demise of the most important exhibition centre for art in Europe and America in the late nineteenth century. Tracing the history of the salon from the French Revolution to the 1880s, Patricia Mainardi shows that its contradictory purposes resulted in its collapse.
