Artwork of the month by Paul Signac

18April 2007

Paul Signac is a simple painter, chiseling subject matter that was popular and commonplace in his time.  As was his life and his paintings – commonplace.  He married, left her later, shacked up with a woman, painted some, and died.

I have always liked this painting.  I enjoy the seemingly random color placement of his work.

Paul Signac
French, 1863-1935
“Blessing of the Tuna Fleet at Groix”

Go see this at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts
…it is worth a few moments of investigation.
