For some time past one
has watched the growth of
an evolution which, should
it continue a little longer,
must end in robbing the
Salons of a great part of

their charm. The displays by single artists, or by been already seen elsewhere—at the Orientalistes,
groups, have now become so numerous that most the Aquarellistes, the Pastellistes, the Peintres
pictures, before appearing at the Grand Palais, have Militaires, the Peintres de Paris, or at the Union

Artistique or Volney Clubs, not to
mention numberless studio dis-
plays. So, for those who had
attended these shows, there was
not much that was new to be
gleaned in this Salon of 1907,
albeit one could not reproach it
with being much worse than its
predecessors. Let us now glance
at the principal things worth re-

In the first place, a room
was devoted to Bracquemond,
the engraver, and this homage to
the great master of his art has my

forgets those who leave it; and it
is a good thing that we should
thus be reminded of this illustrious
survivor of the great race of artistic
giants of the 19th century. The
collection of Bracquemond’s work
was very complete, and the proofs
exhibited at the Nationale almost
all came from the artist’s private
collection, while some had been
lent by collectors. To these were
added some of his paintings and
decorative art work : thus we had,
right in the heart of the Salon,
