Regatta in Concarneau

  • Print Description
      In the summer of 1891 Paul Signac set about creating a series of five seascapes he painted in Concarneau, a small fishing village on the southern coast of the Breton peninsula, Brittany, France. Signac's pointillist renderings of these seascapes were linked to melodic themes or music - ultimately creating a five movement symphony. Regatta in Concarneau is the most captivating of the five paintings showcasing a recurring motif of sail boats in the foreground and in the distance against a summer horizon and shifting sky as the golden sun sets.  Signac engages a complementary colour palette of shades of yellow and violet, blue and orange to complete this rippled seascape of regatta sail boats, portraying an idyllic 19th century French coastal setting.

      You will find that our framing costs are more reasonable than your local framer, due to our business being purely online. 

      Being online means we have lower overheads than a typical art and framing business which provides us the opportunity to pass those savings onto you, without losing any of the quality or craftsmanship of an experienced framer.All of our frames are custom made using sustainably sourced wood and we use glass not perspex in our frames.

      We also offer three popular finishes of black, white and natural timber. All of our frames have a smooth, matte finish and have a solid structure with classic design elements that do not disappoint. You will find that a large amount of our art is encompassed by an approx. 5cm white border around the main image. We have done this to minimise additional costs associated with mat boards, which we do not supply as part of our framing process.

The Artist

PAUL SIGNAC

Paul Signac (1863 – 1935) was a French pioneer of Neo-Impressionism who, at the age of 18 after attending a Monet exhibition decided to pursue a career as a painter.  Working alongside the iconic Georges Seurat, Signac helped to develop the Pointillist painting style (small dots of pure colour).

Signac is famed for his scientifically juxtaposed small dots of colour, intended to combine and blend not on the canvas but in the viewer's eye, the defining feature of Pointillism.  Many of Signac's paintings are of the French coast, which combined his love of sailing and painting water.  Signac painted alongside, influenced and collaborated with some of the most influential artists of the 20th century including Vincent van Gogh - who he frequently visited, Claude Monet, Odilon Redon and Henri Matisse.

Signac's impact on 20th-century art landscape was profound. His career spanned half a century until his death in Paris on 15 August 1935, and his works can be found among the world's most prestigious art institutions, including the Louvre in Paris and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
