French painter, printmaker, and author Paul Signac’s legacy is bound to neo-Impressionism, the style he enriched through his interactions with Georges Seurat and whose first-hand history he recorded in From Eugène Delacroix to Neo-Impressionism (1899). His position as one of the eminent colorists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries influenced generations of artists, the Fauvists most profoundly. The artist was also a passionate and accomplished sailor who sailed in regattas and spent much of his time exploring the harbors and waterways of France. Naturally, the coastal landscape of his native country, with its colorful vessels and crystal blue waters, comprised one of Signac’s most beloved subjects.
