Delaunay rarely painted the nude figure, and the series devoted to the subject is unusual in his work. In a series of Circular forms, painted by Delaunay incolour is released from any association with reality and is used abstractly to create effects of movement and depth.
The Circular forms are seen as the first non-representational paintings by a French artist. Unlike many other early twentieth-century abstractionists, however, Delaunay also continued to paint figurative works. In this category is the Nude woman reading, where the same colour principles used in the abstract paintings are now applied to the human figure.
This boudoir scene of a woman seated reading at a dressing table is a finely tuned orchestration of colour and form. The curvilinear shapes of the body are present in miniature form in the pattern of the cloth on the dressing table.
