Eiffel Tower, 1924
The use of strong color in design of the 1920s came out of artistic movements such as De Stijl and Orphism, a movement devoted to light and color that was championed by Robert Delaunay. The artist repeatedly took the Eiffel Tower as his subject. In this painting the predominant perspective seems to be from an airplane.
