   'Provence et Mediterranee' by Charles Signoret


BACK Loading... Charles Signoret (1867-1932) Provence et Mediterranee' Oil on wooden panel, 10.5 x 14 in Charles Signoret's lush landscapes and luminous marine scenes won him acclaim early on in his artistic career. Born in Marseille on July 19, 1867, he soon gravitated towards the artistic circles in Paris, studying with eminent teachers such as Jules Lefebvre, Benjamin Constant, Jean-Paul Laurens and Gabriel Ferrier. His paintings were exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais, where he received the Prix Ragnecourt-Guyon in 1910, a Silver Medal in 1914 and a Gold Medal in 1920. His works were exhibited in major Parisian galleries, including the Galeries Georges Petit. Signoret's Post Impressionistic style is evident in his use of bold, contrasting hues to heighten the emotional content of his work. Even though he was influenced by the Barbizon school in his poetic depictions of bucolic settings and vibrant sunsets over water, his vivid palette and short, quick brushstrokes place him well into the XXth century. Signoret uses light in an almost theatrical fashion, drawing the viewer's eye into the canvas to capture an almost elusive moment in time. He often painted on wooden panels instead of on canvas, a support medium which adds depth and luminosity to his work.
