About of Sonia Delaunay
Sonia Delaunay, born in Gradižsk in Ukraine in 1885. She discovered her vocation for art at an early age and studied drawing at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe between 1903 and 1905. Then she moved to Paris.
During her study at the Académie de la Palette she made works which are clearly influenced by Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and the Fauves. Her marriage with Robert Delaunay, an ambitious artist of the Parisian Avant-garde, was determined
by a mutual inspiration to colourful compositions. Both artists intensively dealt with the depiction of light and movement and found a new artistic form of expression on the base of a simultaneous contrast.
Sonia Delaunay's paintings dealt with the idea of light, colour and movement. Her painting 'Bal Bullier' from 1913 transferred the image of rhythmic dance into circling forms, which were mixed in the centre of the painting with pure colours. The transfer of this artistic aim to every-day life, from fashion design, interior decoration to book design made the artist one of the most important members of the Art-Déco movement.
