Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979)


These signed lithographs are midcentury gems by Sonia Delaunay, whose bold hues are fit for a modern castle. Born Sarah Stern In the Ukraine to a nail factory worker, Delaunay was adopted at age five by an affluent uncle, Henri Terk. At 16, she studied art in Germany and emigrated to Paris in 1905, where she marrried Robert Delaunay and with him expanded Cubism. In the 1920s, she opened her own fashion workshop, and with her geometric fabric and fashion designs helped define the Art Deco style. Her fashions helped set the style in Paris and Hollywood in the 1920's. Her work is featured at the Hermitage and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 1964 she became the first living female artist to have a retrospective at the Louvre. She died in Paris in December 1979.
