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.
