This 1986 bibliography provides a source for reviews of the state-sponsored Parisian exhibitions of painting and sculpture (salons) held during the Second Empire, 1852-70. It includes an extensive list of references each presented in a standard format, with titles, dates and ordering codes based on the holdings of the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. It is indexed by authors and by periodicals. The catalogued essays and articles are of fundamental importance in establishing a picture of contemporary reactions to art in mid-eighteenth-century France. Tourneux's standard work Salons et expositions d'art ... Paris 1801-70 has long been out of print. By incorporating and correcting the relevant material from Tourneux, and adding many new references from unpublished and newspaper sources, the compilers have achieved a substantial increase in the amount and range of criticism available for analysis by cultural and literary historians.
