Signac, 1863–1935: Master Neo-Impressionist

Approximately 120 paintings, watercolors, and drawings constitute the first major retrospective in almost forty years to be devoted to the Neo-Impressionist artist Paul Signac (1863–1935). This long-overdue tribute to Signac's power of expression traces the artist's development from the luminous plein-air paintings he made in the early 1880s under the influence of Monet's Impressionism; to his close association with Georges Seurat, from 1884 until 1891, which became the starting point for his exploration of color harmony, contrasts, and Neo-Impressionist technique; to the scintillating works of his maturity, where the rigors of pointillist style give way to richly patterned, mosaic-like surfaces of color.
