Abstract:

"'Robert Delaunay and The City of Lights' recognizes Delaunay's unwavering commitment to color in painting to convey form, depth, light and movement, while highlighting how the modern metropolis of Paris often provided the inspiration for his imagery and pictorial research. In addition to presenting works from of his most famous series of paintings, such as that of the Eiffel Tower, the book also includes portraits Delaunay made of his artistic milieu during the 1920s. Portraits of the poets Philippe Soupault, Tristan Tzara, and several fashionable socialites, wearing ensembles designed by the artist Sonia Terk-Delaunay, are shown. The newly commissioned texts allow the reader to experience the wide-ranging and prescient nature of Robert Delaunay's work - exploring the significant themes of movement, technology, sport, and advertising that were to preoccupy him throughout his career. Exhibition: Kunsthaus Zürich, Switzerland (31.08.-18.11.2018)."
