Robert Delaunay : "Rythmes sans fin" Place Georges-Pompidou 75004 Paris fr

Robert Delaunay : Rythmes sans fin offers a new and contemporary reading of the work of Robert Delaunay, according it a place in the history of modern art that goes beyond the Orphism and the Optical Abstraction to which it is too often reduced.

Through some eighty works, including paintings, drawings, reliefs, mosaics, models and photographs, the exhibition explores the relatively-unknown second period in the work of this exponent of "pure painting".

Following WWI, the coloured discs of Delaunay’s pre-War years found themselves transformed into circular modules which - repeated to infinity - became synonymous with the rhythm of modern life.
Robert Delaunay: Rythmes sans fin reveals the extraordinary wealth of the Centre Pompidou’s holdings of the work of Robert and Sonia Delaunay. Thanks in particular to the substantial gift to the nation made by Sonia and her son Charles in 1964, these are unequalled in the world.
