Robert Delaunay: Painting "The Runner" (around 1924/26), Framed

Inspired by the neo-impressionism Georges Seurat, the French painter Robert Delaunay (1885-1941) painted since 1911 together with the artists of the Blue Rider” group. At the first exhibition of the Munich artist group, he sold most of the paintings.

Unlike at Kandinsky, at Delaunay, the light stays in the foreground. He was led to his ʺOrphism” – as named later by Guillaume Apollinaire – by his window paintings the ʺFenêtre”. Vibrating color spots are forming the displayed form. In that time, Delaunay departed for good from abstract cubism.

Another development of his ʺFenêtre”-series is represented by various ʺFormes circulaires”, begun in the same year and establishing the beginning in 1912 of abstract painting in France.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.
