Paul Signac (born Paris, 1863 – Paris, 1935) Neo-Impressionist French painter and art writer. He studied with Armand Guillaumin. Signac met Claude Monet and helped establish the Salon des Artistes Indépendants in 1884 where George-Pierre Seurat exposed his Bathers at Asniéres. Signac and Seurat developed the Neo-Impressionism movement and Pointillism technique. They created the group "Impressionnistes dits scientifiques".

His paintings are mainly of the French coast; St. Tropez, Cherbourg, Marseille, Nice, Collioure, Ste. Maxime and La Rochelle. Signac loved painting the water and sailing.
