One of Salon du dessin’s priorities is to ensure the quality of the works exhibited through a committee of independent and renowned specialists.

All works presented at the Salon must undergo a meticulous physical examination by the members of the various admissions committees just before the opening of the fair.

The same rigor of quality is applied to the new viewing room of the Fair, Salon du dessin Online.

The physical edition of the Salon du dessin fair which having been postponed following the health measures imposed by the French authorities against the Covid-19 pandemic, the vetting committee is unable to physically examine all the works presented in the viewing room.

On the other hand, the members of the committee ensure a rigorous digital verification of the drawings of the platform before they are put online.

The exhibited works on Salon du dessin and on the Salon du dessin Online are presented and offered for sale under the exclusive responsibility of the individual exhibitor only.

The vetting committee invited by the organizers of Salon du dessin has given its opinion and advice regarding the exhibited works’ authorship and quality in a consultative capacity only.

The organizers and members of said committee will assume no legal responsibility in the event the authorship of a work is questioned.
