It is noteworthy the enormous effort being made by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors to make the traditional Salon of Autumn a benchmark in Spanish artistic life, and as José Gabriel Astudillo comments, “for our institution has been a great triumph to achieve such a high level of participation and with such quality, and it has been a great success, and a remarkable achievement, to achieve such a reliable decision guaranteed by a jury composed of such important and representative figures from the art world in Spain. ”
“The Salón de Otoño is a call to which artists come running away from selfishness, immodesty and adulation, because it is a unique artistic manifestation because it is of a breadth of judgment, a nobility and a lack of interest that, will not hit understand the majority of the public and even the artists themselves, “says Astudillo, as” it is not a matter of winning an economic prize, it is a reward that every artist seeks, for the pleasure of enjoying one of his prestigious awards. ”
As Astudillo assures us, the main thing about the Salón de Otoño “is the discovery of the young values ​​and the possibility that gives us our call to be visible before the specialized critic and public opinion in general, being a platform of discovery of new promises, spirit with which was born the Hall of Autumn and with which it endures today “.
