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.

Designation for the painting and sculpture detached from the representational portrayal, which spread from around 1910 in ever new style variations across the whole western and parts of the eastern world. Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, born in 1866, is considered to be the founder of abstract art. Among other important artists of abstract art are K.S. Malewitsch, Piet Mondrian, and others.
