A5 (21 x 14.8 cm) single postcard featuring L'Équipe de Cardiff [The Cardiff Team] by Robert Delaunay part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection.

In 1912 Delaunay began the first of several versions of The Cardiff Team. The motif derived from a newspaper photograph of a Cardiff-Paris rugby match, which showed players jumping for the ball. Delaunay added Paris's famous Ferris wheel and an 'Astra' billboard, which advertises an aircraft construction company.

Robert Delaunay (12 April 1885 – 25 October 1941) was a French artist who, with his wife Sonia Delaunay and others, co-founded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes. His key influence related to bold use of colour and a clear love of experimentation with both depth and tone.
