Art: Old is the New Modern - "Although trained in fine arts in Paris, Delaunay worked in set design before beginning his painting career in 1905. He found his initial influences in the Neo-Impressionists, but gradually moved on to join Der Blaue Reiter in 1911. His Paris cityscapes began to take on a distinctive style that studied the effect of contrasting color patterning. Delaunay's unique method spurred friend and poet, Guillaume Apollinaire, to place his paintings in a new movement, which he called Orphism." - World Wide Art Resources
