Organized by the Russian Academy of Arts in partnership with the Union of French Artists under the auspices of the Mission of Rossotrudnichestvo in France and Stella Art International Association, the exhibition “Salon of French Artists” presents over 50 artworks in all media including painting, graphic art, mosaic, sculpture, architecture and photography by 42 masters of contemporary art.
The exhibition continues a bilateral Russian-French cultural project initiated in February, 2017 when the Society of French Artists invited the Russian Academy of Arts to take part in the international art show “Art en Capital” held in Paris in Grand Palais since 1901 to showcase works representing various trends of world art.
The Society of French Artists was set up in 1881. Each year it organizes the exhibition “Salon of French Artists”. The Russian Academy of Arts and the Society of French Artists highly appreciate the possibility of arranging exhibitions with involvement of Russian and French artists and their role in the promotion of centuries-old cultural ties between Russia and France. For her significant contribution to the implementation of the joint art projects the head of the Society of French Artists Ms Martine Delaleuf has been elected an Honorary Member of the Russian Academy of Arts.
