  1. Paul Signac was born in Paris on 11 November 1863. He sailed around the coasts of Europe, painting the landscapes he found. He also painted watercolors of French harbor cities in later years.

    In 1884 he met Claude Monet and Georges Seurat. He was struck by the systematic working methods of Seurat and by his theory of colors and became Seurat's faithful supporter, Under his influence he abandoned the short brushstrokes of Impressionism to experiment with small dots of pure color, trying to combine and blend not on the canvas but in the look of the viewers , the defining feature of pointillism.

    Many of Signac's paintings are of the French coast. He loved to paint the water. He left the capital each summer, to stay in the south of France in the village , where he bought a house and invited his friends.

    In 1886 Signac met Vincent van Gogh in Paris. In 1887 the two artists regularly went to Asnières-sur-Seine together, where they painted such subjects as river landscapes and cafés. First, Van Gogh chiefly admired Signac’s loose painting technique. In March 1889, Signac visited Vincent van Gogh at Arles. Next year he made a short trip to Italy, seeing Genoa, Florence, and Naples
    Some of his well known paintings are: The Bonaventure Pine, Saint Tropez and, The Papal Palace.

    This image is the Papal Palace. Painted by doing pointillism :
