Sonia Delaunay at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum

There is a wonderful exhibit of Sonia Delaunay's textile designs, drawings, and paintings at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and my friend Pat and I spent the morning there today.  The website has a long video entitled Converation Among Friends and while watching it, in preparation for my visit, I sketched one of Sonia's friends.  She was wearing a Delaunay-designed scarf and a hat she made from Sonia's fabric.



Today I sketched several of Sonia's fashion illustrations and many of her textile designs.  While I've seen an occasional one of her paintings, this exhibit was remarkable and her art so varied.  Here are two of her fashion illustrations that I copied.




Thanks for introducing me to Sonia Delaunay, her work was just wonderful, very modern. Also loved you sketches, especially that sophisticated looking friend wearing that beautiful scarf.

What a wonderful exhibit to be able to see, and I love your drawings! nancy

You continue to amaze and inspire me. You take advantage of the many exhibits and your sketches certainly capture the moment. Sonia's work was so bold! Loved it.

You get to see so many interesting exhibitions, thank you for sharing some of what you see!

Lovely =) I hope you have fun Shirley

You always have so many interesting things to sketch! These are lovely! I've drawn my pen twice today. :/
