Collection: Robert Delaunay

Robert Delaunay (1885-1941) was a French painter and pioneer of Orphism, an art movement characterised by colourful, abstract compositions that focused on the interplay of light and color. Delaunay's art was influenced by his interest in the scientific concept of simultaneity, which he sought to capture in his paintings through the use of overlapping forms and hues. His innovative style has had a lasting impact on the development of abstract art, cementing his place as a major figure in the art world.
