Oil painting -> List of Painters -> Robert Delaunay

Early Days:

   Robert Delaunay (12 April 1885, Paris – 25 October 1941) was a French artist who used Orphism, which is similar to abstract art, abstraction and cubism in his work. Delaunay concentrated on Orphism, while his later works were more abstract, reminiscent of Paul Klee. His key influence related to bold use of colour, and a clear love of experimentation of both depth and tone. While he was a child, Delaunay's parents divorced, and he was raised by his uncle, in La Ronchere (near Bourges). He took up painting at an early age and, by 1903, he was producing mature imagery in a confident, impressionistic style.
