Beach At Saint-Briac By Paul Signac

Beach At Saint-Briac. Oil on canvas, 1890.

The French-born painter Paul Signac was known for his artworks in various styles — from Impressionism to Divisionism. Yet, it was the Pointillism — a technique of painting that resembled its name and was developed in 1884 by Signac and his fellow artist Georges Seurat. Pointillism’s artworks consisted of thousands of small colored dots, and these paintings were easy to recognize.
