Being a fan of color it’s no wonder I’m attracted to the work of Sonia Delaunay.
I recently discovered a textile piece of hers at The Armory Show
in NYC (see below). Not only was Sonia a painter, but her work crossed
over to fashion, furniture and textile design. She and her husband
Robert Delaunay co-founded the Orphism art movement, an offshoot of
The Tate is showing a retrospective of Sonia’s work until August 9th.
The show encompasses her paintings, fashion and textile design. It’s
no wonder she is considered the “European doyenne of Abstract Art”.
