Paul Signac

Paul Signac

(1863 - 1935)
Born: Paris, France
Style: Post-Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Young Women of Provence at the Well (1892)
  • The Red Buoy, Saint Tropez (1895)
  • Port of La Rochelle (1921)
Paul Signac was an adamant follower of Georges Seurat's pointillist paintings, and contributed to the development of the Post-Impressionist period. Together the two artists developed paintings which reflected intense studies of color theory. In particular, they sought to understand the use of dots, not strokes, of unmixed pigments. The colors would then be blended by the eye, and from a distance create an effect of light and depth. A trademark of Signac's paintings was this placement of complimentary colors side by side. The results were overwhelming color schemes, taken from visual cues and the freedom and color selection of impressionistic paintings. While Georges Seurat did not approve of his theories being documented, his early death allowed the young Signac to aggressively present his passionate vision. The artist completed and published a type of manifesto on pointillism in 1899. During the year 1900 Signac discontinued his use of circular dots and began painting with square shapes, showing a departure from the scientific approach of Seurat. Signac had digested his mentor's teachings, and was manifesting a freer sense of expression. Signac often painted harbor scenes from the extensive time he spent on the French Mediterranean coast. Henri Matisse, the father of the Fauvists was highly influenced by Signac's work and use of color, and visited him at St-Tropez in 1904.

I have been using Fluid paper for a few years now and find that it's a great value for the price. The quality is suitable for beginner to intermediate level painters. Very easy to work with, accepts watercolor paints, pencils, aqua crayons and markers well.

I paint quite a few paintings on your canvases and am quite pleased with the great quality of them and your service is always very punctual!!! Thank you, Ron Burton
I apply these paints in small plastic bottles and add a metal tip to outline and apply. The only thing I dislike is you never know which color will change to a different color after baking. Mostly I use the Pebeo 150. I find they do not change color after baking. Another problem is they do not have it in white,first time I used what looked like white, it turned ivory and even looked more yellow than ivory. I just wish there were more art suppliers who carry it. Most of the time I order it.
