Editorial Reviews

Review

It is the rare museum exhibition that bets most of the house on fabric swatches -- or, more politely, textile samples -- and succeeds. This is the impressive achievement of "Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay," a sumptuous and enlightening show at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum that may change forever the way you look at dry goods. --Roberta Smith, New York Times, March 18, 2011

Format: Paperback
Catalog of a neat show at Cooper Hewitt in NYC which focussed on the textile and fashion design of Sonia Delaunay, Delaunay's paintings, better known today than her textile work, focus on color and geometry. So too do her fabric designs, and they are full of the spirit of early 20th century modernism. This will be an enjoyable book for anyone interested in textile design, and/or in early modernism.
