Topic: Salons and exhibitions
As I have uploaded pictures from the 18th century, I have often found that they were exhibited in the Paris Salon, which shaped the painting life in France in the 18-19th centuries. It took place in the Salon Carré of the Louvre Palace from 1737 to 1880, hence the name. We even have some pictures of the paintings disposal in the Salon in etching like this one: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File: … e_1787.jpg
And the catalogues of the Salons for each year are available online. I think this could be very interesting for scholars to have a list of the paintings presented there to see the evolution of the official arts through the centuries.
So I created an exhibition for the Salon of 1789 (http://www.the-athenaeum.org/ex/detail.php?eid=2321), and I would have liked to add 'The Lictors Returning to Brutus the Bodies of his Sons' of David (http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=65340) but there is a bug, it displays this on the top of the page:
Warning: pg_query() [function.pg-query]: Query failed: ERROR: syntax error at end of input at character 56 in /home/pallas/public_html/ex/add_item.php on line 88
Warning: pg_fetch_array() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/pallas/public_html/ex/add_item.php on line 91
If you can to fix this problem I will be able to add all the the Salon exhibitions and start adding images to them.
