A magnificently illustrated showcase of works by artists in Paris at the dawn of the 20th century In Paris at the turn of the 20th century, an artistic revolution was underway. The Salon des Indépendants was organized in 1884 by a group of artists and thinkers that included Albert Dubois-Pillet, Odilon Redon, Georges Seurat, and Paul Signac, who was the organization's president from 1908 to his death in 1935. They chose as their slogan "neither jury nor reward" (ni jury ni récompenses), and for the following three decades their annual exhibitions set new trends that profoundly changed the course of Western art. This beautifully illustrated volume features paintings and graphic works by an impressive range of artists who exhibited at these avant-garde gatherings where Impressionists (Monet and Morisot), Fauves (Dury, Friesz, and Marquet), Symbolists (Gauguin, Mucha, and Redon), Nabis (Bonnard, Denis, and Lacombe), and Neo-Impressionists (Cross, Pissarro, and Seurat) all came together.

This book, the catalogue of the first retrospective of the work of the French Neoimpressionist artist Paul Signac to be held in nearly forty years, accompanies the 2001 exhibition organised by the Reunion des Musees Nationaux/Musee d'Orsay, Paris, the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. This long overdue tribute to Signac's power of expression and artistic influence features some two hundred paintings, drawings, watercolours, and prints from public and private collections worldwide. Fully illustrated in colour and discussed in individual entries, these works offer an unprecedented overview of Signac's fifty-year career. Signac's artistic development began with the luminous plein air paintings he made in the early 1880s which reveal the lessons he absorbed from Monet, Guillaumin, and other leading Impressionists. From 1884 until 1891 Signac's close association with Georges Seurat encouraged his explorations of colour harmony, contrasts, and Neoimpressionist technique. In the scintillating works of his maturity the rigours of Pointillism gave way to richly patterned, decorative colour surfaces. In a series of essays the exhibition's curators disc

Paul Signac and Georges Sureat were the founders and the chief proponents of the Neo-Impressionist group of artists, the most prominent force in French art from 1886 until 1891. This exhibition represents the complete holdings of Paul Signac's work in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the majority of which are in the Robert Lehman Collection. Parallel to this show, drawings and oil sketches of Seurat from New York collections are exhibited in the galleries of the Department of Drawings. Robert Lehman was very fond of Signac's art. He appreciated the dignified serenity and exact organization of the compositions, and he admired the free-flowing arabesques of line and the brilliance of the colors. Mr. Lehman acquired several oils and dozens of watercolors by Signac during the long years of his collecting. Many of these were given to museums and friends, but a considerable group of the artist's works remained in the collection at the time it entered the Metropolitan Museum. Therefore, it seemed natural that as part of our program of making available to the public larger segments of the Robert Lehman Collection, an exhibition of Paul Signac's works should be organized. Furthermore, for the first time, we have included in this exhibition the Signac holdings of other departments of the Museum. The drawings and oils sketches of Georges Seurat from the Robert Lehman Collection are naturally all included in the Seurat exhibition.

Once the State-run Salon in Paris closed, an array of independent Salons mushroomed starting with the French Artists Salon and Women’s Salon in 1881 followed by the Independent Artists’ Salon, National Salon of Fine Arts and Autumn Salon. Offering an unparalleled choice of art identities and alliances, together with undreamed-of opportunities for sales, commissions, prizes and art criticism, these great Salons guaranteed the centripetal and centrifugal power of Paris as the “modern art centre”. Lured by the prospect of being exhibited annually in Salons the size of Biennales today, a huge number and national diversity of artists, from the Australian Rupert Bunny to the Spaniards Pablo Picasso and Juan Gris, flocked to Paris. Yet by no means were these Salons equal in power, nor did they work consensually to forge this “modern art centre”. Formed on the basis of their different cultural politics, constantly they rivalled one another for State acquisitions and commissions, exhibition places and spaces, awards, and every other means of enhancing their legitimacy. By no means were the avant-garde salons those that most succeeded. Instead, as this culturo-political history demonstrates, the French Artists’ and National Fine Art Salons were the most successful, with the genderist French Artists' Salon being the most powerful and “official”. Despite the renown today of Neo-Impressionism, Art Nouveau, Fauvism, Cubism and Orphism, the most powerful artists in this “modern art centre” were not Sonia Delaunay, Émile Gallé, Paul Signac, Henri Matisse or even Picasso but such Academicians as Léon Bonnat, William Bouguereau, Fernand Cormon, Edouard Detaille, Gabriel Ferrier, Jean-Paul Laurens, Luc-Oliver Merson and Aimé Morot, who exhibited at the “official” Salon supported by the machinery of the State. In its exposure of the rivalry, conflict and struggle between the Salons and their artists, this is an unprecedented history of dissension. It also exposes how, just below the welcoming internationalist veneer of this “modern art centre”, intense persecutionist paranoia lay festering. Whenever France’s “civilizing mission” seemed culturally, commercially or colonially threatened, it erupted in waves of nationalist xenophobia turning artistic rivalry into bitter enmity. In exposing how rivals became transmuted into conspirators, ultimately this book reveals a paradox resonant in histories that celebrate the international triumph of French modern art: that this magnetic “centre”, which began by welcoming international modernists, ended by attacking them for undermining its cultural supremacy, contaminating its “civilizing mission” and politically persecuting the very modernist culture for which it has received historical renown.

"Werth weaves together complex analyses of these paintings and others by Manet, Gauguin, Seurat, Cezanne, and less well known artists with a consideration of their critical reception, literary parallels, and the social and cultural milieu. She moves from artistic concerns with tradition and avant-gardism, decoration and social art, composition and figuration to contemporary debates over human origins and social organization."--BOOK JACKET.

The collection formed by William Appleton Coolidge speaks of a remarkable breadth of taste, of a spirit responsive to works of art of all periods, and of visual discrimination of a high order. Many of the works are intimate in scale, appropriate for domestic contemplation, and it is no surprise that this most unselfish of collectors delighted in sharing his prized possessions with his friends. But he was also keen to benefit a wider audience: for years the finest of them were on loan to the Museum of Fine Arts, and before his death Mr. Coolidge had begun to donate masterpieces, including the paintings by Rubens and Signac. There have been collectors who formed larger and greater collections; however, there were very few who cast their net as broadly as William Coolidge while sustaining such a consistently high level of quality. His catholicity of taste is a characteristic virtue of the Boston past, namely its intellectual curiosity about different times and peoples and its receptivity to good ideas regardless of point or period of origin. There is still much to be learned and enjoyed in such an attitude.
