Sonia Delaunay, Design & Geometric Abstraction

Painting by Sonia Delaunay

Sonia Delaunay was the first living woman to have a retrospective at the Louvre and is probably best known for her bold geometric patterns. Delaunay spent most of her career in Paris, painting and designing alongside her husband Robert Delaunay. As we studied her work and life, we noted and analyzed important elements that made her work so appealing (color, line, composition). Students created their own, bold, geometric painting inspired by her design.
