Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay
Opening March 18 at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, "Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay" will feature the work of Delaunay, a French painter and textile and fashion designer known for her intensely colorful work. Among the more than 300 works on view—dating from the 1920s through the 1940s—are garments and textiles, with correlating designs, fashion illustrations and period photographs. "By showing her work at Cooper-Hewitt, the constant interplay between art and design will be strong and clear and by virtue of Delaunay's glorious colors, a very joyful experience," says Bill Moggridge, director of the museum. Here's a preview.
