Robert et Sonia Delaunay

£50.00

Product description

Published in 1987 by Nouvelles Editions, France. Text in French. Fully illustrated in colour.

Robert Delaunay (1885 – 1941) was a French artist who, with his wife Sonia Delaunay and others, co-founded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes. His later works were more abstract, reminiscent of Paul Klee. His key influence related to bold use of colour and a clear love of experimentation with both depth and tone.

Sonia Delaunay (1885 – 1979) was a Ukrainian-born French artist, who spent most of her working life in Paris. Her work extends to painting, textile design and stage set design. She was the first living female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at the Louvre in 1964.

In very good condition throughout with some curling and small tears to edge of dust jacket.
