Happy Birthday Sonia Delaunay

Sonia Delaunay was born on November 14th. She was a painter and decorative artist who founded the art movement Simultanism. This art movement is centered around the interplay between simultaneous contrasting colors.

Sonia Delaunay's artistic breakthrough came to her when she was designing a blanket for her baby. The energy of colors and the geometric design of the blanket inspired her to move away from the representational art she was doing at the time. She went on to become a well exhibited painter, design textiles and other decorative items.
