Artist’s Catalogue: Paul Signac
Paul Signac was a Post-Impressionist painter, as well as a writer and art theorist. He left several important books and essays on the theory of art, as well as many yet unpublished works. One of his most notable books is called “From Eugène Delacroix to Neo-Impressionism,” published in 1899. In it, he lays out his ideas about color, painting, optics, and technique.
This artist’s catalogue blends together Signac’s literary and artistic works in order to let each one speak through the other. It features cross-sections of color reproductions of his works on transparent Clearfold sheets which allow the viewer to step through the layers of color in his paintings and experience the vibrant world of optical color mixing. It also includes watercolor sketches and background on his life in order to convey a deeper understanding of Signac as an artist and as a man.
