Art HistoryThe Russian-born Sonia Delaunay (French, 1885–1979) was the wife of the artist Robert Delaunay. Although not painted until 1959, Colored Rhythm epitomizes a mode of abstraction she and her husband developed in the mid-1910s, which was dubbed “Orphism” by the poet Guillaume Apollinaire. Using bold colors and simple geometric forms—circle, square, rectangle, and triangle—she imaginatively suggests different depths of plane and an exciting sense of movement.
