Paul Signac was a French Post-Impressionist artist and theorist. Signac’s favored motif was the Mediterranean, and he often rendered views from its harbor cities in his pointillist pieces. Signac left his architectural studies behind to become an artist after seeing the works of Impressionists like Claude Monet in Paris. He wanted to further develop the techniques used by Impressionists, and to compose exacting harmonies of color instead.
"Charing Cross Bridge", one of the many works in the London series by Claude Monet, will be sold at Sotheby's in November with an estimate of $20-30 million.
