Société Libre des Beaux-Arts
   A grouping of pictorial artists, the Société libre des Beaux-Arts was founded on 1 May 1868. Its chief spokesman was Louis Dubois and its central aim was to promote realism in art. The group organized its first exhibition of paintings in December 1868 in the Galerie du Roi at the premises of the daily newspaper La Chronique. Exhibits by Belgian artists, including Constantin Meunier, and French painters, notably Gustave Courbet and Jean-François Millet, were featured. The salons highlighted trends in naturalism much in vogue in Belgium in the early 1870s. Financial difficulties led to the group's dissolution around 1875.
