display_image.phjp

Paul Signac’s portrait of his friend and fellow anarchist Felix Fénéon was painted in 1890, four years before Fénéon was arrested by Paris police on suspicion of participating in the bombing of a restaurant and aiding in the assassination of French President Sadi Carnot. Twenty-nine others were arrested as well, leading to what became known as the “Trial of Thirty.” Fénéon was ultimately acquitted, as were many of the others.
