The stunning 71 x 90 cm landscape painting entitled Blessing of the Tuna Fleet at Groix was created by Paul Signac. The picture is dated 1923 and belongs to the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Paul Signac was one of the most important painters of the Neo-Impressionist group, along with Georges Seurat. Pointillism, the style that Seurat and Signac championed, was an advancement and systematization based on the formal innovations proposed by the Impressionists, but with a more scientific-inspired use of the palette. Nevertheless, the artist was highly influential, and his use of color and brushwork still inspire artists today.
Blessing of the Tuna Fleet at Groix was painted in a mid to large-sized canvas, almost with the shape of a square. This work was painted during the late years of Signac’s career when he was already established and acted as the president of the Société des Artistes Indépendants. This institution organized the Salon of the Independents. While employing his usual tiny brushwork, Blessing of the Tuna Fleet at Groix, especially because of its theme and setting of being a seascape, is similar to Impressionism.
In the bottom section of the work, occupying roughly one-third of the composition is the sea. Neo-Impressionists, like their older counterparts, worked with pure, non-mixed colors. The idea of Pointillism, also known as Divisionism, was to make the color blend in the eye, juxtaposing little areas. The sea is an excellent example of this technique: the prevalent color is an aqua-greenish blue, accompanied by Prussian blue, deep green, and yellow. As a result, the texture of the sea is turned into a fragmented surface, exploding with color and brightness.
Closer to the boats, Signac also painted their reflections on the water, broken into irregular rectangles. The boats are also intensely colorful. The one at the middle is white and yellow, then pink and white, burgundy and blue, white and soft blue, and orange and green. The boats and their poles are turned into highly well-organized and composed areas of pure color. On the top of it, flags are moving with the wind. The Pointillist treatment gives the work a dynamic and rough aspect, seducing the public with its rhythm. Blessing of the Tuna Fleet at Groix is a stunning picture that vibrates with color and beauty.
