The Salon des Réalités nouvelles (new realities) was an exhibiting society devoted to pure abstract art founded in Paris in 1939
Artist Sonia Delaunay set up the society along with other artists working in an abstract style. The name reflects the fundamental idea that abstract art is a new reality because it does not refer to or imitate any existing reality.
After the interruption of the Second World War it was re-established in 1946, again with the help of Sonia Delaunay, and continues today. It provided in the post-war era the same focus for the purest tendencies in abstract art that Abstraction-Création had pre-war.
