Sonia Delaunay

imageThe Sonia Delaunay exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt looks wonderful—at least from my computer. The link will take you to a slide show about the exhibit. Some of the designs are on paper and some are printed on silk. And what about those swimsuits! The Hand-Eye magazine Facebook page has been featuring some of them. This one is my favorite. It’s gouache on paper, which makes me think (again) about doing a little designing that way. Even her driving caps (above) look cool! The blurb says that they are silk and wool embroidery on wool. Not sure how that works…they look knitted to me.
