French painter Robert Delaunay (1885-1941) had been a really dynamic artist within the twentieth century. His art design kept shifting between your triangular creative zone created of ‘Orphism,’ ‘Abstraction,’ and ‘Cubism.’ Robert’s ‘The Eiffel Tower Series’ consisted quite effective functions of his existence. The Tower, the icon of urbanization, constantly fascinated Delaunay. Being a radio tower, the Tower represented boundless correspondence as well as its specific construction was symbolic of the growing machine age. Robert created around 25 functions (sketches, window paintings, and oil paintings) utilizing Eiffel Tower as the topic, during his self-termed ‘destructive stage.’ All these paintings depict the tower encircled by tall buildings, from different angles and viewpoints. Three oil paintings within the ‘Eiffel Tower Series,’ built between 1909 and 1912, are considered Delaunay’s true art masterpieces.

The 3 well-known oil paintings from Robert’s Tower Series were:
• Tower with Trees (49 ¾” x 36 ½” canvas)
• Tower (Tour Eiffel) – Measuring 79 ½” x 54 1/2″ canvas, this painting shows the tower emerging within the drape of skyscrapers about.
• The Red Tower (63 ¼” x 50 5/8″ canvas)

The ‘Eiffel Tower Series’ by Robert Delaunay epitomizes ‘Modernism.’ All the paintings are dramatic portrayals, pulsating with vitality and present an evasive graphic. A vibrant flow of vivid hues, shape a pool of interesting abstracts. All 3 paintings present an angular view of the Tower. Robert has utilized a bright but narrow color palette, including red, orange, brown, gray, white, black, as well as the shades of blue, in his ‘Tower Series.’ His innovative approach in the series was free of all of the then set creative norms, ‘Impressionist’ landscapes to be precise.

Delaunay modified a distinctive fashion, which appears ‘Cubist’ in nature with a touch of ‘Fauvism’ (due to the utilization of vibrant color). He invented the non- imitative shape of art, where color, rather of a object-inspired shape, plays a key character in the painting. The fragmented levels of color shape the fascinating patterns of fractured spaces, left to be perceived by the audience notice. The genius of these surprisingly futuristic illustrations seems to provoke the internal physic and elevate 1 to a different amount of self-awareness.

Robert Delaunay’s specific conceptualization in ‘The Eiffel Tower Series,’ established his name as a pioneer in ‘Abstract Art.’ Clement Greenburg when mentioned about Robert Delaunay, “He was an enterprising painter whose influence to the art planet was much better than his art.” The paintings “Eiffel Tower with Trees” and “Eiffel Tower” currently rest at the Guggenheim Museum, NY, while “The Red Tower” is at the Arts Institute of Chicago.
