By the end of the First World War, Paul Signac (1863-1935) was painting more finished watercolours than he was oils. This change was encouraged by a successful exhibition of those watercolours in Paris in November 1921.
Signac’s Saint-Tropez, Boat being Careened from 1920 is an unusual view of a boat which has been deliberately grounded alongside the quay, to allow maintenance to be performed on its hull. As a longstanding yachtsman he had considerable insight into this procedure.
Saint-Paul-de-Vence is a sketch of this hilltop mediaeval town on the Côte d’Azur, close to the border with Italy, painted in about 1921.
