A celebrated Post-Impressionist and Divisionist painter, Paul Signac is known for his luminous depiction of subjects ranging from cabaret performers to seascapes. Signac is famous for his use of Divisionism (the central practice of Neo-Impressionism), a rigorous method invented in 1884 by his close friend Georges Seurat, in which colors are applied to the canvas separately in dots or dabs, blended later through the viewer’s own visual process—a technique Signac exploited to particularly radiant effect. Before the advent of Divisionism, Signac’s style more closely resembled the Impressionism of Camille Pisarro and Claude Monet, the latter’s work significantly influencing Signac in his early career. Signac’s bold sense of color would in turn be an inspiration to the Fauvists André Derain and Henri Matisse, as well as Vincent Van Gogh, whom he counted among his friends.
