Signac: The Collector

Musée d'Orsay / Paris / Art

Paul Signac, born in 1863, honed a Pointillist style by studying the works of Impressionists, particularly Monet, Degas, and Cézanne. As a leading figure in the Neo-Impressionist movement, as well as president of the Société des Artistes Indépendants from 1908 until his death in 1935, age 71, Signac had his finger on the pulse of early-20th-century art. This exhibition, a collaboration between the Musée d’Orsay and the Signac archives, presents paintings, designs, and engravings that the artist collected over his lifetime—from Impressionists to the Fauves—and celebrates Signac’s discriminating eye both as a creator and a collector. —Sonya Ribner
