The paintings in these salon exhibitions were hung from floor to ceiling in the gallery. Between 1748 and 1890, the Salon de Paris was considered the greatest annual art event in the Western world. Sponsored by the Academie Royale and Ecole des Beaux Arts, the Salon de Paris was open to all artists to apply. Later in the 19th century, other competing organizations created their own exhibitions that were also called salons, featuring a variety of works hung to fill the gallery walls from high to low.
