Book Description: This is the story of a woman who played a significant role in the avant-garde of Paris in the 1920s. A working woman, wife and mother, Sonia Delauney was married to Robert Delauney who gained wide recognition as one of the leading stars of modernism. Sonia herself had to wait until the 1960s before her own abstract art received the acclaim it had long deserved. When she married, she remained in the background, despite producing a wide variety of art - paintings, drawings, clothes, costumes, book bindings, tapestries and carpets, as well as the original commercial fabric designs of the 1920s and 1930s. Based on archival material, including her private journals, this book provides a portrait of Sonia Delauney.
