Opus 217. Against the Enamel of a Background Rhythmic with Beats and Angles, Tones, and Tints, Portrait of M. Félix Fénéon in 1890

Artist: Paul Signac, 1890

Felix Fénéon was an art dealer, collector, curator, political activist, critic, and friend of Signac who shared the artist’s interests in science and Japanese prints. In this portrait Signac achieved with extraordinary lucidity a reconciliation between requirements of representation and the Neo-Impressionist tendency to make of colour arranged in geometric rhythms an end in itself.
