The Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts (SNBA) was founded in France in 1868. The society’s goal was to promote and protect French art and artists, and it did so by holding exhibitions and offering prizes. In 1874, the society held its first exhibition, which featured work by such artists as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Édouard Manet, and Paul Cézanne.
The Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts continued to hold exhibitions throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These exhibitions helped to promote French art and artists, and they also served as a way for the public to view and purchase art. The society also offered prizes and scholarships to encourage young artists.
Today, the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts continues to promote French art and artists. The society holds exhibitions, offers prizes and scholarships, and provides financial support to French museums. The Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts is a member of the International Association of Art, which is a network of organizations that promote and support the arts.
