Description

Sonia Delaunay (French, born Russia, 18851979) had a passion for color. In her signature version of Cubism, she juxtaposed vivid blocks of color to explore their tonal relationships. She named her distinctive style simultanisme, a term she adopted from the treatise De la loi du contraste simultan des couleurs (The Law of the Simultaneous Contrast of Colors). For our vibrant scarf design weve adapted a detail from a color plate in Sonia Delaunay: ses peintures, ses objets, ses tissus simultans, ses modes (1925), a rare portfolio devoted to her work in the Metropolitan Museums collection.
