In front the golden coast of the gulf, the blue sea breaking on a small beach. . . . In the background the blue silhouettes of the Maures and the Esterel—there is enough material to work on for the rest of my days. Happiness—that is what I have just discovered.” (Ferretti-Bocquillon M, Distel A, Leighton J, Stein SA. Signac, 1863-1935. New York, NY: Metropolitan Museum of Art/Yale University Press; 2001:172.) Well-heeled tourists visiting St Tropez today may echo the glowing review of Neo-Impressionist painter Paul Signac (1863-1935) at his 1892 arrival in the area. Signac was enchanted with the Mediterranean mise en scène, highlighted in his glittering renderings of this region of southern France.
