Lot 572: French neo-impressionist painter (1863–1935) who, working with Georges Seurat, helped develop the Pointillist style. ALS in French, one page both sides, 8.25 x 5.25, Societe des Artistes Independants letterhead, April 7, 1932. In part (translated): "I am about to lose one of my children; in these circumstances, I find it quite impossible to execute the work you ask of me. I'll be grateful to you not to insist." In fine condition. Signac was among the founders of the Societe des Artistes Independants in 1884, an organization dedicated to holding large independent art exhibitions in Paris. The format departed from the traditional Salon in that it lacked awards and a selection jury, allowing artists to present their work to the public with complete artistic freedom.
