Science and Art in 1913

Sometimes artists explore scientific ideas in their work. Robert Delaunay Paris painted “Simultaneous Contrasts: Sun and Moon” a little over a hundred years ago.

He finished the painting in 1913, but dated it 1912. This was because he wanted to be known as the first to explore certain ideas in his paintings. “Simultaneous Contrasts” explores new ideas about the sun and moon, light, sounds, and color contrasts.
