A member of the Parisian avant-garde, Sonia Delaunay (French, born Russia, 18851979) married the artist Robert Delaunay in 1910, with whom she often collaborated. Her work included paintings, collages, books, posters, decorative objects, textiles, clothing, and theater sets and costumes. Delaunay was honored with a full-scale retrospective in 1967 at the Musée Nationale dArt Moderne in Paris.
Sonia Delaunay (French, born Russia, 18851979) had a passion for color. In her signature version of Cubism, she juxtaposed vivid blocks of color to explore their tonal relationships. She named her distinctive style simultanéisme, a term she adopted from the treatise De la loi du contraste simultané des couleurs (The Law of the Simultaneous Contrast of Colors). For our vibrant scarf design weve adapted a detail from a color plate in Sonia Delaunay: ses peintures, ses objets, ses tissus simultanés, ses modes (1925), a rare portfolio devoted to her work in the Metropolitan Museums collection.
