Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Delaunay influenced both the art and fashion worlds with the bold colors and abstract forms of her fashion and textile designs and paintings. Baron, an editor with art publisher Thames & Hudson, and Damase, a poet and author (Sonia Delaunay: Fashion and Fabrics, Abrams, 1991), present Delaunay as an independent artist who became an avant-garde force along with her husband, Robert. While the book provides insight into Delaunay's character through photographs and excerpts from her journals, it also chronicles her growth as an artist by including excellent representations of her textiles, gouaches, and fashions. In the most poignant parts of this book, the authors describe Delaunay's quest to ensure exposure and respect for her late husband's work and chronicle her later years, when she finally received recognition apart from her husband. Because the work is more comprehensive than Damase's solo effort or Sonia Delaunay: Art into Fashion (Braziller, 1986), it is highly recommended for fine arts collections in academic and large public libraries.?Julie C. Boehning, "Library Journal"

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for aspiring fashion illustrators. Sonia Delaunay's style was so ahead of its time that you can see her influence in todays fashion illustrations. Also, seeing the way she plays with color and shape is fascinating. I did wish the text was slightly more in-depth.
