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.
