Paul Signac: one of the principal neo-impressionist painters

In 1884 Signac helped found the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. There he met Seurat and they developed their technique of painting with dots (or "points" in French) of color, which led to the name pointillism. Pointillism became the basis of the Neo-Impressionist movement.


As Signac explained, they used the pure impressionist palette but applied it in dots that were to be blended by the viewer's eye. What Signac called "muddy mixtures" were to be banished from painting and replaced by luminous, intense colors.


Many of Signac's works are landscapes, inspired by the bright sunlight of southern France, where he was sailing a lot and bought houses in St Tropez and Antibes later on.
