Small homes, growing collections …. It is not always a case of budget, but rather space. ArtsHub takes a look at the history of the ‘salon hang’, and tips on how to do it right yourself.
The ‘Salon-Style Hang’ is a method of displaying artworks in a stacked format – both horizontally and vertically. The style originated in the 1660s with the Royal Academy in Paris (the annual graduates exhibition of the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture). The first salon was held at Palace of the Louvre.
