Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979)
While Robert Delaunay conceptualizes abstraction as a universal language, Sonia Delaunay experiments it on the most various media. The 30s were marked by the development of a refined abstraction characteristic of the International Style. During the post-war period, Sonia Delaunay’s painting undergo a profound renewal that culminates in the late 1960s, in an intense poetic abstraction. Her formal and technical creativity is then expressed in monumental works in painting, mosaic, rugs and upholstery.
