Sonia Delaunay. Art, design and fashion
- Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza
For its temporary exhibition Sonia Delaunay. Art, design and fashion, the museum has released an interactive publication that explores the works of the Russian-born Sonia Delaunay.(1885 – 1979), one of the key figures of the first Parisian avant-garde movement. Page after page relates Delaunay’s artistic adventure based on the contrasts between colours and the dissolution of the form through light that led her to abstraction.
