This salon was a true crowning point for the painter, whose work, in the original theme, was engraved and caricatured by Cham, another indication of success. It is interesting to note that at the same salon Manet exhibited his Olympia, a precursor of a movement that would break with the academic approach to which Michaud was still attached. It is the allegory of the life of the young painter, who handled the subject with an entirely romantic ardour.
