SIGNAC, Paul
(b. 1863, Paris, d. 1935, Paris)

Evening Calm, Concarneau, Opus 220 (Allegro Maestoso)

1891
Oil on canvas, 65 x 81 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

This work is one of five related paintings of fishing boats at sea near the French town of Concarneau, in Brittany. Signac linked his Concarneau paintings with musical sub-titles, metaphorically suggesting a symphonic arrangement.
