Paul Signac (1863 - 1935)

He was born in Paris in 1863 and became an early admirer of Monet. He painted in Paris with his friend Armand Guillaumin. In 1884 he met Monet himself and Georges Seurat, the founder of Divisionism or Pointillism. Signac adopted that mode of painting and became an advocate for it, along with the journalist Félix Fenéon, who was the subject of one of Signac's best paintings. All three were anarchists in politics.
