Colour Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay, Paperback / softback Book

Colour Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay Paperback / softback

Edited by Matilda McQuaid, Susan Brown


Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution in New York City, Colour Moves focuses not only on abstract painter and colourist Sonia Delaunay's art but also her avant-garde fashion designs from her own Atelier Simultane in Paris during the 1920s as well as textiles she designed for the Metz & Co Department store in Amsterdam in the 1930s.

Applying her talents and theories to all areas of visual expression, including graphics, interiors, theatre and film, fashion and textiles, a trademark of Delaunay's work is the sense of movement and rhythm created by the simultaneous contrasts of certain colours.

The book features authoritative essays by Matilda McQuaid, Matteo de Leeuw-de Monti and Petra Timmer, accompanied by reproductions of over 250 of Delaunay's paintings, drawings, textiles and garments with correlating designs, fashion illustrations and period photographs.
