Painter, textile and stage designer and co-conspirator (with her husband) Robert Delaunay) of the Orphist movement, Sonia Delaunay is a heroine of early modernist art and design. Known primarily as an abstract painter and colorist, Delaunay applied her talents and theories to all areas of visual expression, including graphics, interiors, theater and film, fashion and textiles. A characteristic of her work is a vivid sense of movement and rhythm through careful color combination. This volume focuses not only on her art but also her avant-garde fashion designs for her Atelier Simultane in Paris during the 1920s as well as textiles she designed for the Metz & Co.department store in Amsterdam in the 1930s. The book features essays by Delaunay experts accompanied by more than 300 paintings, drawings, designs, textiles, garments, and photographs. Published to accompany the exhibition @ New York Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, 03/18/11-06/05/11.
