Sonia Delaunay: Rhythms and Colours
“Our epoch has a tendency to revere its great artists and wants to know everything about them; but the danger of emphasizing their individual traits is that one often forgets the historical significance of their work.” So begins this artistic and biographical journey through the life of Orphic Cubist Sonia Delaunay, whose avant-garde work in the early 20th century would carry the “liberating innovations” of 19th century greats into the modern era. Sporting beautiful images of all Delaunay’s work over her lifetime, photographs of the artist herself, and immensely readable biographical notes, this is an artistic biography worthy of an artist of Delaunay’s stature and influence.
