At the end of the 19th century, Maupassant sails back and forth the Mediterranean on his yacht, Le Bel-Ami. It is on this occasion that he discovers by chance a charming little fishing village, then totally unknown to the rest of the world, Saint-Tropez. He describes it in these terms: "One of those charming and simple daughters of the sea ... pushed into the water like a shell, nourished with fish and sea air and produce sailors." It is enough for Paul Signac to read this description that he also make a stopover in the old port city. Considering Saint-Tropez as the eighth wonder of the world, he made the acquisition of a villa that he transformed into a workshop. Of course, Signac did not stay alone for a long time on his little piece of paradise, his fellows of Neo-Impressionism and Fauvism also wanted to take part in this pictorial revolution which is underway and to try their art under the inimitable light of the Peninsula. Thus Matisse prepared the canvas Luxe, calm and voluptuous and painted paintings as memorable as Madame Matisse in kimono, Vue de Saint-Tropez or the so poetic Place des Lices. They are both joined by Pierre Bonnard, Francis Picabia, Albert Marquet and many others. A few years later, Moses Kisling joined the city on the back of a donkey ...
