    Nov 11, 1863 – Aug 15, 1935
  • Sunset, Herblay, Opus 206 - 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.

    Oil on canvas
    22 1/2 x 35 3/8 in. (57.1 x 90 cm)
    Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow, United Kingdom.

    Using the complementary colours blue and orange, Signac captures the rich, atmospheric glow of a sunset at Herblay, a village on the river Seine. Intent on capturing a particular quality of light, Signac applies his paint using dabs and patches, rather than the rigid dots of Pointillism.

    Notice how Signac has inscribed ‘Opus 206’ in the lower right hand corner – just as a piece of music might be numbered. Signac believed that his method of painting, combining colours that were divided and then harmonized, was like musical composition.

  • I have admired this painting from childhood. It resides in Glasow Kelvingrove Art Gallery. I found it almost impossible to obtain: even a print! I dicovered Paintingmania by accident. When I received the painting, I was overwhelmed. It was so real. But deeper, it is a painting by Signac of reflection, meditation and conteplation on a wet Scottish afternoon, and we get many! Thank you for your professionalism and courtesy.

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.
