About

Jean Salabet French, 20th Century Montmartre Jean Salabet was a School of Paris painter know for his colorful Parisian cityscapes. His work is comparable to those of Jules Herve, Antoine Blanchard and Edouard Cortes. Juan Bayón Salado, Bay-Sala, J. Bayon, J.B., Jean Salabet (1913-1995) A Biscayan artist, Juan Bayón Salado (Jean Salabet), was born in Logroño on June 24th, 1913. He died in Bilbao on April 2nd, 1995. In 1918 he moved to Bilbao. In the early 1930s, he installed his easel at the Bilbao Arenal, where he painted and raffled his paintings among the attendees in order to help his parents. At the time he used to sign as Bayón, and soon after he became a benchmark in the area. According to the painter Manuel de Gracia: In 1941 he celebrated his first exhibition in Bilbao and a year later he exhibited in Zaragoza, where for the first time he used the pseudonym Bay Sala as signature of his works; that same year he also exhibited his works in Logroño and Bilbao. In 1943 he attended the Exposición Nacional de Bellas Artes with the painting Puerto de Motrico and held exhibitions in Barcelona and Bilbao. Two years later his work La Mina Abandonada was present at the Exposición Nacional de Bellas Artes. That same year he presented himself at the Primera Exposición Provincial de Bellas Artes in Bilbao with the works Riberas Frondosas and La Mina Abandonada and he obtained the Excmo. Ayuntamiento de Bilbao’s gold medal. From that date onwards he hasn’t participated in any other contest. In 1945 he was a founding partner of the Asociación Artística Vizcaína. In 1948 he participated in the exhibition "35 Paisajes Vascos" at the Witcomb Gallery in Buenos Aires; also making his presentation in Madrid. In the spring of 1950 he set off for Paris, where he settled his residence until the end of 1969 in search of the roots of Impressionism. During those twenty years, as Manuel Lumbreras indicates, he: "exhibits regularly at the Roussard Gallery in Paris, as well as at the Salon Cano in Madrid and at the former Sala Arte of Bilbao. He is summoned from Buenos Aires and Tokyo and he is selected, along with 35 other artists, to cover the 16th and 17th editions of the Salon de Toile in Paris, together with such eminent artists as Cocteau, Dalí, Dufy, Picasso, Utrillo and Vlaminck, among others. His works become part of the most important international collections around the world." In 1968 he held exhibitions in Tokyo and Paris. A year later, he returned for good to Bilbao, where he regularly held exhibitions, as well as in Madrid and Barcelona; he also spent long periods painting in Holland, France, Italy, USSR, Belgium and Ireland. In 1971 his son Juan Bayón opened a small gallery on Iparraguirre street, under the name of Bay Sala, presenting a collective exhibition with the works of A. Alegre, Bardasano, Bay Sala, M. de Gracia, C. Gil, Herráez, Largacha, Luzuriaga, Martínez Díaz, Olaortúa, R. Calpena, J. Quesada and R Sáez. In October 1975, the gallery moved to Licenciado Poza street, 14. The inaugural exhibition of this new space is a tribute to four Basque artists who obtained medals at the Exposiciones Provinciales de Bellas Artes: Bay Sala, Largacha, Merino y Párraga. To this exhibitions followed many individual and collective exhibitions by artist such as Anglada, Benedito, Madrazo, Pradilla, Martín Rico, Lucas Padilla, Marceliano Santa María, C. Pía, Pérez Villamil, Picasso, Grau Sala, Puigdengolas, San Vicens, Millares, Amat, Mallol, Pichot, R. Domingo, Muñoz Degrain or Martínez Vázquez among many others. Among them, Juan Bayón's work is regularly displayed in the gallery. With a group of painter friends Bay Sala created the talks of "La paleta del Nervión". As a result of this idea, the "Paleta de Oro del Nervión" trophy was created. It is periodically awarded to the most outstanding artists. Among them, Bay Sala himself (1984), Martínez Díaz, Largacha, Juan Manuel Lumbreras and Manuel de Gracia. In 1985 he was invited to the exhibition "Maestros Actuales de la Pintura Española" for the inauguration of The Embassy gallery in Miami, Florida. In 1991 he was appointed Honorary Fellow of the Asociación Artística Vizcaína. His works are in the Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao and in the Museo San Telmo of San Sebastián, among others.
