Paul Signac was a post-impressionist painter of the 20th century. He was born in France, in 1863.
He loved the pointillist style, composed with small, laborious dots. Other neo-impressionist painter, Seurat, and Signac developed this technique. He did many abstract paintings using pointillist style.
Most of his works represent the ocean or the Mediterranean coast; because he was a navigator and he liked paint landscapes with water. The human figures appear in Signac’s pictures too.
Paul Signac inspired the Fauvism, a movement of modern artists of twentieth-century. His abstract pointillist technique also formed the basis for 20th-century tendencies to dissolve both object and space, specifically Cubism.
