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.
Delaunay influenced both the art and fashion worlds with the bold colors and abstract forms of her fashion and textile designs and paintings. Baron, an editor with art publisher Thames & Hudson, and Damase, a poet and author (Sonia Delaunay: Fashion and Fabrics, Abrams, 1991), present Delaunay as an independent artist who became an avant-garde force along with her husband, Robert. While the book provides insight into Delaunay's character through photographs and excerpts from her journals, it also chronicles her growth as an artist by including excellent representations of her textiles, gouaches, and fashions. In the most poignant parts of this book, the authors describe Delaunay's quest to ensure exposure and respect for her late husband's work and chronicle her later years, when she finally received recognition apart from her husband. Because the work is more comprehensive than Damase's solo effort or Sonia Delaunay: Art into Fashion (Braziller, 1986), it is highly recommended for fine arts collections in academic and large public libraries.?Julie C.
