Detailed description

Set of silk scarf and stick umbrella "Formes Circulaires" (1912)

The various "Formes circulaires" he began producing in 1912 represent a further development of his "Fenêtre" series (window pictures) and thus mark the beginning of abstract painting in France. Multi-coloured circular discs, on top of each other and inside each other, form a moving and at the same time harmonious composition with rings and coloured areas.

Stick umbrella: Automatic umbrella, polyester canopy, fibreglass frame. Handle and shaft made of black plastic. Length 90 cm. Umbrella diameter 100 cm.
Scarf: Silk satin, 100% silk. Size 180 x 42 cm (l/w).

The set includes a stick umbrella and a silk scarf.

About Robert Delaunay

1885-1941

Inspired early on by the Neo-Impressionism of Georges Seurat, the Frenchman Robert Delaunay (1885-1941) started to paint together with the group "Der Blaue Reiter" in 1911. At the first exhibition of the artists' group from Munich, he even sold the most paintings of all.

In contrast to Kandinsky, Delaunay focused on light. His window paintings, the "Fenêtre", led him to what Guillaume Apollinaire later named "Orphism": vibrating areas of colour are shaping the form to be depicted. It was during this period that Delaunay finally rejected Abstract Cubism.

In 1912, the "Formes circulaires" which were a further development of his "Fenêtre" series, marked the beginning of abstract painting in France.
