Featuring reproductions of Delaunay’s colorful artwork, this book is a charming introduction to abstraction and to a groundbreaking artist of the early twentieth century.
The New York Times book review:
“Art is all around us, always,” the early 20th-century artist Sonia Delaunay says to her son in this ingenious book, part biography, part lesson in color and design theory. Manes, a curator at the Museum of Modern Art, has Delaunay, a pioneer of abstraction, take off in a colorful flying car to show her son the colors, patterns and textures that shape her work. Even sounds and feelings, she shows, can be incorporated into design. Ramos’s lovely, playful art pulls off the tricky task of evoking Delaunay’s while standing strongly on its own."
