Sonia Delaunay: A Life of Color
In Sonia Delaunay: A Life of Color an artist takes her son Charles on a journey to understand experiencing color. Charles' mother is Sonia Delaunay, who in the early 1910s, together with her husband, Robert, proposed the bold idea that instead of depicting people, places, and things, as they appeared they would reflect the modern world by capturing its colors, shapes, and movements. This book incorporates four full-color plates of Sonia's work from collections at the Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Pompidou to bring her ideas about art and life to young readers.
Bold illustrations by Fatinha Ramos and an exciting story by Cara Manes are sure to entertain.
