(1885 – 1941)

French painter. He first expressed himself in neo-impressionism and fauvism. He prioritized warm colors such as red, yellow and blue.

His encounters with the literary and artistic spheres that flourished in Paris, pushed him towards Cubism and then Orphism, a synthesis of Cubism and Futurism. Robert and Sonia Delaunay will develop an abstract art tinted with warm colors and circular shapes.

He is also the painter of modernity and rapidity. He will pay several times a tribute to the Eiffel Tower. In his artistic pursuit, he met many artists and poets such as Tristan Tzara, André Breton, Philippe Soupault, Louis Aragon, Igor Stravinsky, Metzinger and Pablo Picasso.
