This painting was included in the last Impressionist exhibition in 1886. However, Signac is considered a representative of Neo Impressionism. This movement came after impressionism and which was based on scientific analysis of colours. The green and purple accents in the blue water already predict the later development of pointillism and its use of pure colour.
