Signac, the colors of water
As part of the second Normandie Impressionniste festival, which will focus on the theme of water, the musée des impressionnismes Giverny is organising the exhibition “Signac, the colors of water”.
Like Monet, Paul Signac found a constant source of inspiration in the depiction of water and its colours. From his early seascapes, painted on the beaches of Normandy with an impressionist vigour and freedom, to his large post-war architectonic port scenes in almost fluorescent colours, the description of the water and sky offered Signac an inexhaustible pretext to experiment with all variety of chromatic combinations.
The exhibition includes approximately 120 paintings, watercolours and drawings. These are supported by substantial documentation (photographs, publications and correspondence) that is presented with the assistance of the Archives Signac.
Exhibition organized by the Museum of Impressionism in Giverny with the collaboration of the Musée Fabre Montpellier.
