Sonia Delaunay at the Tate

Rather busy lately – but wanted to recommend the Sonia Delaunay exhibition at Tate Modern – went with a friend rather on a whim and was bowled over by her work. Interested that early on she did a patchwork quilt cover for her baby’s cradle which looked exactly like one of her wonderful abstract paintings. It was particularly interesting because she would have been criticised at a quilting show because the finishing was not very neat! The impact was amazing.

Sonia had a long life and this exhibition takes you through every part of it. She lost her husband early on in the second world war when they decamped to Menton. She lived on developing her style, her wonderful fabric designs and being an inspiration and guide to younger artists.

A wonderful show which I went round twice and will definitely go again .

I never did post that picture of the kangaroo – but definitely will tomorrow.
