Description

Paul Signac was a political anarchist who believed deeply that social change could only be achieved in concert with absolute artistic freedom. Working alongside Georges Seurat, Signac turned to Neo-Impressionism as a path to achieve his radical goals. His rainbow-colored and neatly gestural landscapes which so often depicted the coast in St. Tropez where the artist summered, position Signac as a link between artists such as Seurat and Vincent van Gogh on the one hand and Henri Matisse on the other.
