Paul Signac

1863 - 1935

He was training as an architect, but when he attended an exhibition of works by Claude Monet he decided on a career in painting. Together with fellow Neo-Impressionist Georges Seurat, he developed the Divisionist technique, which confers a sparkling luminosity to the canvas by juxtaposing pure colour applied in small points. He travelled extensively, painting mostly landscapes and seascapes. He also mastered watercolour, which came to occupy a prominent place in his oeuvre. He was president of the Société des Artistes Indépendants from 1908 until his death and encouraged many younger artists; he was the first to buy a painting by Henri Matisse.
