An illustrated survey of the life and work of the artist Sonia Delaunay. Delaunay was prolific in a number of different fields and she brought her abstract use of bold colour to paintings, prints, illustration, books, theatre design, textiles, fashion, tapestries, and interior decoration. All these aspects of her output are discussed and illustrated here, alongside quiotes from Apollinaire, Cendrars, Colette, Robert Delaunay, Tristan Tzara, etc. The book remains one of the key monographs on Sonia Delaunay to date.
