Paul Signac (1863-1935)
Everyone knows Paul Signac: a “historic” artist, founder of pointillism with Georges Seurat. An indisputable master, exhibited in the major museums of the world, on all continents. Oil painter, very skilled, but also watercolourist without equal, he started in 1929 representing the main French harbours. This is why he came to Saint-Malo, to seize different views of the city. Two of these views–the ramparts, Saint-Servan–specially pulled out of the familial archives where they were preserved for almost a century, are now revealed to the public for the first time.
