Sonia Delaunay

Apparently, the first woman to have her paintings hung in the Louvre during her lifetime. You can find textile and fabric designs by Mrs Delaunay and she worked on theatre set design too; I have the sense she was prepared to diversify in order to pay the bills.

    I had a reproduction Delaunay hanging in our bedroom. I can’t remember what it was called but it looked like what can only be described as womens beach volleyball in the early 1900’s.
    Anyway I broke it decorating and it now sits in our garage, where at one point or other I shall take it down to the tip.

    Sadly maybe I was expecting too much! 😦

    This blog recognises your pre-eminent connoiseurship when it comes to rug art, Sudsy.

    Was it called ‘Paris’, RAF?

    Excuse me, just off to do some diversifying.

    PS. I’m with OS on this one. The Delaunay’s must’ve shared their hallucinogens.
