In 1892, Signac discovered the small fishing village of Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera. He painted and drew numerous pictures of the harbour with its characteristic lighthouse. Saint-Tropez attracted many other artists in Signac’s wake. Decades later, in the 1950s, it became a favourite holiday location for the international jet set.
