Born on April 12, in Paris, France in 1885, Delaunay worked in Orphism, (Abstract Expressionism combined with Cubism). He is known for his brilliant color, greatly influenced by Paul Klee. The painting below is titled Tall Portuguese Woman, look closely, you can see the figure of his woman on the right).
