Sonia Delaunay

A handsome, affordable introduction to the modernist polymath who charted the rhythms of color across textiles, illustration, painting and more

Sonia Delaunay was a true pioneer of modernist abstraction; breaking with the figurative vocabulary that subordinated color to subject matter, she placed dynamic color interaction at the core of her vision, whether expressed through painting, book illustration or costume and textile design. Drawing inspiration from both traditional Russian crafts and the modern frenetic metropolis, Delaunay’s work reflects the drastic changes ushered in by industrialization. Through her polyvalent practice, Delaunay helped construct the new modern woman that she herself embodied: equal parts avant-gardist, creative entrepreneur and businesswoman.
This richly illustrated catalog showcases the range of Delaunay’s work as it unfolded over 60 years, from abstract paintings and works on paper to textile design, garments, fashion photography, books and carpets—even a brightly colored sports car.
Born in Odessa, Ukraine, Sonia Delaunay (1885–1979) migrated to Paris in 1906 and became a key figure in the city’s avant-garde scene. During these early years, her paintings underwent a formal shift influenced by the vivid colors of Fauvism. She soon met her husband, fellow artist Robert Delaunay, and the couple pioneered a fusion of Cubism and Neo-Impressionism that they termed Simultanism, which denotes abstract painting that uses color in a manner comparable to the use of sound and rhythm in music. In 1964, Delaunay became the first living woman artist to have a retrospective at the Louvre.

A new monograph on Sonia Delaunay releases this week!

Last week marked the end of the wonderful Sonia Delaunay survey at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. It was truly difficult to choose an image to reproduce here, we love them all so much. Nevertheless, in honor of the show’s closing, we are pleased to feature the 1925 oil painting, Robes simultanées (Trois femmes, formes, couleurs), which shows Delaunay's skills as a painter and a designer. “The Russian-French artist Sonia Delaunay (1885 1979) worked across media, art forms and cultural spheres, merging art and design and pushing abstract art far beyond the frame of painting,” Tine Colstrup writes. “Encompassing multiple projects at once, her art unfolded over 60 years, from the 1910s to the 1970s. Color—in particular, dynamic color interaction—is at the heart of her work. In painting and other disciplines, Sonia Delaunay cultivated nonfigurative compositions in which colors did not have to color anything, as in figurative pictures, but work instead by their own power through dynamic, evocative contrasts. Colors affect each other when seen side by side. With cultivation of such simultaneous color contrasts as the jumping-off point, the term simultaneity became the ultimate key to her work. The concept embraces the vibrant dynamism of the modern world and an artistic position simultaneously engaged in multiple areas.” Colstrup continues, “As an artist, Sonia Delaunay herself is thoroughly simultaneous, moving freely in and out of isms and roles.” continue to blog
