  • The Bonaventure Pine in Saint-Tropez - Paul Signac was One of the principal neoimpressionist French painters who, working with Georges Seurat, helped develop the pointillist style. Under his influence he abandoned the short brushstrokes of impressionism to experiment with scientifically juxtaposed small dots of pure color, intended to combine and blend not on the canvas but in the viewer's eye, the defining feature of pointillism.

  • Le pin de Bonaventura a Saint-Tropez

    1892
    Oil on canvas
    25 x 32 in.
    Museum of Fine Arts - Houston, United States.

    Paul's most famous painting "The Bonaventure Pine in St. Tropez (Le pin de Bonaventura a Saint-Tropez)" is a stunner. His other famous works include 'Port St. Tropez and,' 'Saint Tropez,' and 'The Papal Palace.'

    Created in 1892, "The Bonaventure Pine in St. Tropez" is an oil on canvas 'Landscape Painting.' In his painting, Signac captures a huge Umbrella Pine in St. Tropez, on a canvas of 25″ x 32″. The artist painted the bright light shining off the deep surface of pine needles, sea, and the grass covered land. The painting reflects a perfect blend of sky, earth, and sea. The background of "The Bonaventure Pine in St. Tropez" is an abstraction of green, white, blue, yellow, and orange. The landscape behind the Bonaventure Pine tree, the cloudy sky, the mountain, and the boat sailing in the sea, promise the beauty and the passivity of the painting. Paul repeatedly placed consistently shaped dots of pigments stream and swirls, defining lustrous contours.

    The best part of "The Bonaventure Pine in St. Tropez" is the usage of many dots of paint like light pixel. Through 'Pointillism,' Paul mixes light from far away into the retina of the eye and lets the brain do the mixing of the color instead of him mixing the color on the canvas. "The Bonaventure Pine in St. Tropez" in fact, is a painting of contemporary movement, which departs from the usual 'Photo-Realism' of the time.

    By 1900, Paul Signac moved away from 'Pointillism,' as he never stopped himself to one medium. He experimented with watercolors, oil paintings, pen-and-ink sketches, etchings, and lithographs. Until his death in 1935, Paul was the president of the annual Salon des Independent (Society of Independent Artists). He was a motivation mainly for André Derain, Henri Matisse and to various other amateur painters, as he inspired them towards the work of 'Fauves' and the 'Cubists,' thereby also leveraging the growth of 'Fauvism.' "The Bonaventure Pine in St. Tropez" is presently displayed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, USA.

Paul SignacWhen he was 18, Signac gave up architecture for painting and, through Armand Guillaumin, became a convert to the colouristic principles of Impressionism. In 1884 Signac helped found the Salon des Indépendants. There he met Seurat, whom he initiated into the broken-colour technique of Impressionism. The two went on to the method they called pointillism, in a fashion that came to be called Neo-Impressionism. They continued to apply pigment in minute dabs of pure colour, as had the Impressionists, but they adopted an exact, almost mathematical system of applying the dots instead of the somewhat intuitive application of the earlier masters. In watercolours Signac used the principle in a much freer manner. After 1886 he took part regularly in the annual Salon des Indépendants, to which he sent landscapes, seascapes, and decorative panels. Being a sailor, Signac traveled widely along the European coast, painting the landscapes he encountered. In his later years he painted scenes of Paris, Viviers, and other French cities.
