Felix Fénéon was not an artist himself, but around the turn of the 20th century he was an integral part of the Parisian art scene and one of its most fascinating characters. Felix was an art dealer, collector, curator, political activist, critic and friend of Paul Signac who shared his interests in science and Japanese prints. He discovered Georges Seurat and coined the term Neo-Impressionism, an art movement that Seurat would lead with Signac. 

This painting is a pulsating affirmation of Neo-impressionist theory and pointillist technique. The swirling patterns in the background create a kaleidoscopic color wheel with abstract designs in eight sectors meeting at a central point, contrasting with the foreground figurative portrait of Fénéon and the flower. Signac portrayed him in an unusual and eye-catching work, a worthy tribute to Felix's own life. The socks have seamless knitting to create a sock with no stitches.
