Paul Signac: A Collection of Watercolors and Drawingsby Marina Bocquillon, Charles Cachin (Essay By), Townsend Wolfe (Foreword by), Marina Ferretti Bocquillon, Ellen Nidy (Editor)
A leader in the Neo-Impressionist movement, the French painter Paul Signac (1863-1935) is best known for the intense color effects in his oil landscapes and marine canvases. However, it is in his largely unknown graphic works on paper-the precise black-and-white sketches and fluid watercolors that filled his sketchbooks, and that are published here for the first time-that his evolution as an artist emerges. This catalogue raisonn�-designed to accompany the first exhibition of 133 of Signac's watercolors and drawings-is the only book in print on this well-loved artist. Presenting Signac's graphic oeuvre in its entirety, the stunning volume serves as a visual diary, tracing his life, his travels, and his artistic explorations, capturing his passion for boats and water, and providing a new understanding of this important artist. 157 illustrations, 140 in full color, 11 x 93_4"
