Paul Signac

A self-taught French artist, Signac was a key figure in the Neoimpressionist movement. He was influenced by Seurat, adopting his technique of pointillism (painting in dots of complementary colour). This can be seen in his painting of Cassis. Cap Canaille.

Following Seurat's death in 1891, he continued to promote the theories and techniques of the movement through his articles and his book, 'From Delacroix to Neo-Impressionism', which was published in 1899.
