Description
Sonia Delaunay made enormous contributions to the development of abstraction in the early 1900s. Sonia Delaunay: Art Is Life introduces young audiences to her art as Sonia and her six-year-old Charles embark on a magical road trip in their car, modelled after Sonia's 1925 design for a Citro#65533;n convertible. Together they glide into a landscape made up of colours and shapes drawn from Sonia's early abstract compositions - almost as if they've entered one of her paintings. Along the road, they make pit stops at 'sites' that inspired some of Sonia's key paintings of this period (such as the dance hall depicted in her 1913 work Bal Bulier and the open air Portuguese market that was the subject of her 1915 painting March#65533; au Minho). Sonia and Charles also explore her gorgeous and colourful designs for fabrics and clothing. Through these encounters, Sonia helps her son understand her artistic process of abstracting from reality by asking Charles what shapes and colours he discerns within these subjects. Their journey ends back in the real world, and Charles realizes that his mother's thinking about art permeates every aspect of their life.

display_description Sonia Delaunay, painter and textile, theater, and fashion designer, made enormous contributions to the development of abstraction in the early 1910s, partly because of her son, Charles. In this new book, Delaunay and six-year-old Charles have a fantastical adventure in a world of color and form, a magical road trip in their car, modeled after her 1925 design for a Citroen convertible. They glide into a landscape of colors and shapes drawn from Delaunay's early abstract compositions, it's as if they've driven into one of her paintings. Mother and son also explore the artist's gorgeous, colorful designs for fabrics and clothing. Throughout, Delaunay helps Charles understand her artistic process and that of her husband, artist Robert Delaunay, by asking him what shapes and colors he recognizes along the way. They end up back in the real world, and Charles realizes that his mother's thoughts about art permeate every aspect of their life.
