Signac discovered the small fishing harbor of Saint-Tropez during a trip around the Mediterranean in 1892, and for the next ten years he traveled between Saint-Tropez and Paris in the creation of his paintings. This work depicting the port of Saint-Tropez in its entirety is one of his most monumental works of this period, and provides an extreme expression of these formal changes. Signaling Signac's emergence from the Post Impressionists and revealing intimations of the birth of Fauvism, this work represents his achievements at the turn of the century.
