The Liljevalchs Spring Salon is a proud tradition dating from 1921. Following extensive renovations to our building, the Spring Salon will once again be presented at Djurgården. And while the floors may be new and the walls freshly painted most things remain the same in this classic event.
The 2018 Spring Salon attracted 2,423 applications, of which almost two thirds were women. Of the 137 selected artists, 79 were women and 58 men; the average age of the applicants is 49. The youngest is a 19-year-old from Norrköping and the eldest, this as well as last year, is the veteran Siv Appelqvist from Lund who will celebrate her 93rd birthday this year.
