Description

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum is holding Sonia Delaunay's first solo exhibition in Spain. The 210-piece exhibit combines her pictorial work and her designs for the theatre, advertising, interiors, fashion, textiles, and dresses.

Born in Ukraine, Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979) began her artistic training in 1904 in Karlsruhe (Germany), continuing in Paris two years later. In France she met avant-garde artists, including Picasso, Braque, and Robert Delaunay, whom she married in 1910. Delaunay explored the language of avant-garde art in a wide range of media, with bright colours and techniques which recalled her Russian origins. Together with her husband, the artist founded the “simultaneism” movement, which used colour to create space and forms in paintings. Paris became a source of inspiration, but it was in Madrid, in 1917, where they transposed the idea of “simultaneous design” to everyday life. Therefore, her period in Madrid is the central section of the exhibition.
