What's on in Paris in Spring 2001
Editorial Collection

The considerable contribution of one of the world's greatest artists is on view in the Grand Palais National Gallery in Paris, with some 80 major oil paintings as well as 60 drawings, watercolors and lithographs belonging to public and private collections across the globe – from 1st March to 28th May 2001.

Paul Signac (1863-1935)

This is a rare moment in life, a unique opportunity and privilege to see so many of Signac’s works together. When you see the grandeur of the exhibition, you wonder why his work has not before had the recognition it deserves; I really felt as if I was entering in communion with one the greatest spirits of the world for the first time – although hearing me say so, Paul Signac would probably try to play down the great esteem that he arouses in visitors today with his humor and modesty so characteristic of a deeply conscious and aware personality who didn't take himself seriously at all.

In Signac’s work it is quite natural to think of Neo-Impressionism – the “Divisionist” method – and talk of Signac as a follower of Seurat's theories and philosophy of a conscious scientific method of painting that keeps the Impressionist's intuition in check.
