Last week I was reading about a local artist William Dobell. Here’s an image I would never have recognised as one of his works.

Edouard Manet

I’ve been reading about the history of the Salon and it’s birth in the 17th century when Louis XIV became its patron. Named after the Salon Carre, a room in the Louvre it became more of a biennial in 1737. Although it was open to all artists it was very much a conservative exhibition favouring those from the Royal Academy. Anyway click the link to read more if you so desire. Cheers
