The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Robert Delaunay

Robert Delaunay (1885–1941) was one of the first modern artists to take the final step into abstraction, directed by the pure power of colour and by the ideas coming from theories of perception. Delaunay’s oeuvre also deals with the fascination, typical of the time, for the accelerated perception of the city and the technical advances that accompanied this. As a leading light of the avant-garde in Paris, Delaunay created a new artistic language to express these ideas.
