Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979) is one of the most influential figures in the visual arts, fashion design and decorative arts of the 20th century. Her avant-garde esthetics transcended languages, styles, disciplines and borders. Delaunay was the first woman honored with a retrospective of her oeuvre—while she was still alive—at Paris’ Louvre Museum, in 1964.
