About this title


Paul Signac is best known for the intense colour effects in his oil landscapes and marine canvasses, but his evolution as an artist is best witnessed in the fluid watercolours and sketches that filled his sketchbooks. This text covers his entire oeuvre.

From Library Journal:

This exhibition catalog documents a recently acquired gift to the Arkansas Art Center of watercolors and drawings by Paul Signac. In his later years, from 1929 to 1931, the artist traveled the coast of France painting exhilarating sea scenes in a "Ports de France" series. Twenty-two of these surviving graphics, as well as earlier, impressionist-inspired, Dutch- and C?zanne-influenced watercolors form the basis of the full-color catalog with 133 reproductions. The authors, both of whom have previously written on Signac, discuss the unearthing of these gems and the context in which they were created. The accessible prose will bring appreciation to a wide audience. This book serves as an adjunct to the study of Signac's oeuvre, showing the watercolors as a counterpoint to the artist's pointillist oils and divisionist masterpieces. Academics and students seeking an in-depth exploration of Signac's formal theories of color and composition can turn to Floyd Ratliff's Paul Signac and Color in Neo-Impressionism (LJ 4/1/92). Recommended for museum, academic, and public libraries.
