Signac in Saint-Tropez

130 years ago, Paul Signac arrived in Saint-Tropez aboard his sailboat "l'Olympia". Until October 9, the Annonciade museum honors the memory of the painter with a temporary exhibition which presents some of his most beautiful watercolors.

An experienced sailor, Paul Signac demonstrated his mastery of sailing on a certain day in May 1892, shortly before La Bravade, in the midst of waves formed by a strong mistral.

The witnesses of the scene were able to realize that they did not have to do with a bootian.

The artist will contribute to making Saint-Tropez a legend, through the works he has produced in 20 years of secondary vacationing and inspiration.

In his art history lectures, Fabrice Roy combines the past with the present, in a poetic and playful evocation of the French 19th century...
