Paul Signac


The colours should not be mixed on the palette, but in the observing eye. That was the basic idea that Paul Signac adopted from Seurat in 1884. He executed it on canvas with meticulously placed dabs of colour and profound knowledge of optics and perceptual physiology.

Pointillism is a neo-impressionist art movement that resulted in masterpieces that can hardly be surpassed in their luminosity through the cleverly thought-out use of competing and corresponding primary colours.
