The City of Paris - Robert Delaunay

The work displays, by its monumental format (267x406cm) and its iconographic wealth, the ambitions of Robert Delaunay. The composition is read from left to right, like a collage. On the left, the harbor landscape evokes the memory of a self-portrait by Henri Rousseau, entitled "Moi-même". And on the right, the red Eiffel Tower is a self-quotation by the artist, which refers to his other works on the theme. The different parts of the composition are unified by the surface effect of the shimmering planes that make the forms disappear in the color.

L'œuvre en bref

The work displays, by its monumental format (267x406cm) and its iconographic wealth, the ambitions of Robert Delaunay. The composition is read from left to right, like a collage. On the left, the harbor landscape evokes the memory of a self-portrait by Henri Rousseau, entitled "Moi-même". And on the right, the red Eiffel Tower is a self-quotation by the artist, which refers to his other works on the theme. The different parts of the composition are unified by the surface effect of the shimmering planes that make the forms disappear in the color.

The artist

Born into a bourgeois Parisian family, Robert Delaunay (1885 - 1941) was introduced to traditional painting by his uncle. Anxious to become a "painter of modernity", he produced his first paintings in 1904, very much linked to nature and strongly inspired by the neo-impressionist and fauvist movements. After being excluded from the Salon d'Automne in 1906, he acquired a small reputation by exhibiting at the Salon des Indépendants thanks to his paintings of Paris monuments, which were close to Cubism. He even founded, with his wife, the Orphic movement and simultaneism, halfway between cubism and abstraction. Despite his attraction to major art, Delaunay spent much of his life in the decorative arts: he created the sets for the Ballets Russes and painted frescoes for various public buildings.
