sonia delaunay.





Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979) was a textile designer and artist, whose use of geometry and color still inspires me today.

Wishing I could be in New York sometime in the next few months for the Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay exhibit.

I love those prints. They look so modern to me. Even though you juxtaposed the prints and the old photos, I still did a double-take when I saw that the prints were from so long ago.

Beautiful collage! If you can't make it to New York, there's going to be a catalog with everything in the show.
