Salon de Refuses, French for "exhibition of rejects" stems from a long tradition of exhibiting works rejected by any juried/judged art show. The term was most famously used for the Salon de Refuses exhibition of 1863 and included works by artists whom we now revere, like Gustav Courbet, Camille Pissaro and Edouard Manet. This exhibition including Manet's painting Le déjeuner sur l'herbe , Luncheon on the grass which "scandolously" featured a female nude casually lunching with two dressed men. :)
Well the tradition lives on...
