  • The Société des Artistes Indépendants, Salon des Indépendants, formed in Paris 29 July 1884. The association began with the organization of massive exhibitions in Paris, choosing the device "No jury nor awards". Albert Dubois-Pillet, Odilon Redon, Georges Seurat and Paul Signac were among its founders. For the following three decades their annual exhibitions set the trends in art of the early 20th century, along with the Salon d'Automne. This is where artworks were often first displayed and widely discussed. World War I brought a closure to the salon, though the Artistes Indépendants remained active. Since 1920, the headquarters is located in the vast basements of the Grand Palais.
