ARTIST: Sonia Delaunay

Have you ever just fallen head over heels with an artists work? Well, I fall in love with alot of artists work but Sonia Delaunay (1185-1979) was one of my first favorites. I was introduced to her work back in college. I remember designing machine knitted fabric inspired by her art. I still have the presentation board. She is a beautiful colorist. I love her bold shapes and color as well as her interesting compositions. Her work includes painting, textile design and stage set design. This is a great retrospective of her work. She was a wife and mother. She often took second place to her husband, artist Robert Delaunay. After his death in 1941 she really began to blossom.

Thank you for introducing me to the art and life of Sonia Delaunay! Wow... yes! I do love these bold shapes and colours, Especially the last picture where the architecture and the women blend, like they are all - the same kind of creatures? Or like they all are patterns?
