Paul Signac

(1863-1935)

Biography


Paul Signac was born in Paris into a family of a well-to-do master harness-maker. He began to paint in 1880 and was initially influenced by Claude Monet and Guillaumin. In 1883 the young artist attended the free studio of Siegfried Bing (1838-1905). Energetic and sociable, Signac actively participated in foundation of the Société des Artistes Indépendants, a juryless exhibiting society, in 1884. Around 1885, he came into close contact with a group of younger artists, including George Seurat, Maximilien Luce, Henri-Edmond Cross and Theo van Rysselberghe, who set forth the aesthetic and technical creed of Neo-Impressionism (also called Pointillism or Divisionism).
