Signac – Musee Fabre Exhibition – Montpellier, France

Signac Exposition Musee Fabre July, 2013 005

Montpellier´s, Musee Fabre exhibition of French artist, Paul Signac (1863-1935) provides a treasure for those who love colour, water and modern art. The exhibition is titled, The Colours of Water and invites us to take a voyage. The voyage covers not only Signac´s life´s work but his scientific exploration of the use of colour,light and the natural environment. It covers his painting techniques and the development of neo-expressionism and the style of pointillism. It illustrates his diversity as an artist in the variety of mediums he employs from watercolour, oil and canvas, drawing and ink wash. Paul Signac, with others such as Georges Seurant, was a neo-impressionist artist and creator who inspired artists and photographers around the world to take on and continue the voyage.

There is life in the works displayed; the colours and presentation of Signac´s works and his archives capture a feeling that the voyage is a pleasant one. From the painting of Signac on his boat, by Theo Von Rysselbergne, as one enters the exhibition to comments taken from a letter Signac wrote, as one completes the exhibition, about the setting and inspiration he found in Saint Tropez, this exhibition, in the south of France, is fitting.
