The Reading List….Sonia Delaunay

sonja2915webWhen I was in Paris last month I was able to pick up a copy of the Sonia Delaunay book from her ongoing exhibit at The Paris Museum of Modern Art (still open through February 22nd).


What intrigued me the most about Delaunay was her beautiful textile work. It’s lovely to see not only her well known paintings, but her fabrics, her illustrations, and all of  the black & white photos from that period.


The exhibit will be moving onto The Tate Modern Museum in London from April 15th – August 9th 2015.

    I’ve always loved her work. It still feels so completely modern.

    I’m looking forward to seeing this monograph, thanks. It looks brilliant. I wonder if Miuccia Prada has been directly influenced by Delaunay’s work?

    Thanks for this look into the pages of what seems ann excellent monograph. I wonder if Miuccia Prada was directly influenced by Delaunay in past collections?

    What a beautiful post. Any chance you could alter the speed of the pages being turned? I’d like to have a more leisurely look at the wonderful work.
    Thank you for posting this.

    It’s not merely her beautiful work and great talent, but has anyone read of her life? She had an amazing life, and a great love affair with her painter/husband Robert Delaunay, who practically died in her arms as the Germans were invading France. She was Jewish from Russia. She was a genius! Look up her first husband Wilhelm Uhde, both husbands were brilliant men.
