Sonia Delaunay Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1885 - d. 1979

Sonia Delaunay (14 November 1885 – 5 December 1979) was a French artist, who spent most of her working life in Paris. She formally trained in Russia and Germany before moving to France and expanding her practice to include textile, fashion, and set design. She co-founded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes, with her husband Robert Delaunay and others. She was the first living female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at the Louvre in 1964, and in 1975 was named an officer of the French Legion of Honor.

Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, and the integration of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing into her art practice.

Sarah Ilinitchna Stern was most likely born on 14 November 1885 in Hradyzk, Poltava Oblast, then part of the Russian Empire.[2] Her father was foreman of a nail factory.[3] At a young age she moved to St. Petersburg, where she was cared for by her mother's brother, Henri Terk. Henri, a successful and affluent lawyer, and his wife Anna wanted to adopt her but her mother would not allow it. Finally in 1890 she was adopted by the Terks.[4] She assumed the name Sonia Terk and received a privileged upbringing with the Terks. They spent their summers in Finland and travelled widely in Europe, introducing Sonia to art museums and galleries. When she was 16, she attended a well-regarded secondary school in St. Petersburg, where her skill at drawing was noted by her teacher. When she was 18, at her teacher's suggestion, she was sent to art school in Germany where she attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe. She studied in Germany until 1905 and then moved to Paris.

                      Sonia Delaunay (French/Ukrainian 1885-1979) Projet d'affiche 'Chocolat,' 1913-1914 pastel on paper signed Sonia Delaunay-Terk, dated, and inscribed no. 597 (lower right) 14 5/8 x 10 3/4 inches. This lot is located in Chicago. The authenticity of this lot has been confirmed by Richard Riss and is accompanied by a certificate signed by Jean-Louis Delaunay. Provenance: The New Art Centre, London Gimpel Fils Gallery Ltd., London Gimpel & Weitzenhoffer Ltd., New York B.C. Holland. Inc., Chicago Acquired from the above by the present owner, 1987 Lot note: A carefully orchestrated riot of colors, the present study for a Chocolat poster was created by Sonia Delaunay as part of her expansive multimedia career. Executed during the key years of her artistic development, 1913-1914, this work exemplifies Sonia’s exploration of Simultanism, which extended to paintings, collages, textiles, fashion, books, and interiors. The term Simultanism emerged from Sonia’s and Robert’s (her husband) study of  On the Law of the Simultaneous Contrast of Colors (1839). Written by Michel-Eugène Chevreul, the treatise demonstrates the sensational optical effects achieved by placing complementary colors next to each other. In this manner, color and rhythm can create a heightened sense of emotional perception and simultaneous states of being. For the Delaunays, these were more than just compelling visual phenomena, but also an artistic method that allowed them to conjure the dynamism of modern life itself. Born 1885 in Ukraine to working class parents, Sonia discovered art through her maternal uncle Henri Terk, who adopted her in 1890. Terk was a wealthy member of the Jewish bourgeoisie in St. Petersburg and provided his niece with a privileged upbringing, sending her to study drawing in Germany in 1904 at the Karlsruhe Academy of Fine Arts. In 1906, Sonia moved to Paris, where she met Wilhelm Uhde in 1907, an art dealer, critic, and early collector of modernist painting by Picasso and Matisse. They married in 1908, which allowed Sonia to acquire French nationality. It was through Uhde’s gallery that she met the artist Robert Delaunay in early 1909, and to whom she was married in 1910, after an amicable divorce from her first husband. Sonia said about Robert: "In Robert Delaunay I found a poet. A poet who wrote not with words but with colours." (Stanley Baron and Jacques Damase, Sonia Delaunay: The Life of an Artist, New York, 1995, p. 20) Sonia and Robert orbited in a galaxy of early 20th Century art “-isms,” including Futurism, Dada(ism), Cubism, and Modernism. It was in this context that they conceptualized Simultanism, also named Orphism by their friend, the poet Guillaume Apollinaire. Derived from the poet and singer Orpheus in Greek mythology, the name refers to the inherent musical qualities, chromatic scales, flux, and simultaneity conveyed by its practitioners. In 1913, Sonia not only painted several of her chief works on canvas and produced her Simultaneous fashions, but she also made the first Simultaneous book, La Prose du Transsibérien et de la Petite Jehanne de France, which she created in collaboration with poet Blaise Cendrars.  As part of her multidisciplinary approach to art, Sonia created innovative advertising poster designs for Michelin, Printemps, Zénith, Dubonnet, and Chocolat. Projet d’affiche ‘Chocolat’ is one such example. The interplay of green, yellow, orange, and blue planes rhythmically placed across the paper moves the eyes upward, to where the word CHOCOLAT dances across the top of the composition. As noted by art historian Gail Levin, “With handwritten letters and curved areas of a variety of colors, the poster used words as images in a formal sense—as abstraction themselves.” ( Synchromism and American Color Abstraction, 1910-1925, New York, 1978, p. 19) Composed during a significant time in the artist’s career, the present work reveals Delaunay as an innovator who transcended conventional artistic boundaries, one who saw every medium as an extension of her art.

                      SONIA DELAUNAY (Odessa, 1885 - Paris, 1979). "Costume", 1922. Brush, pen and India ink on paper. Signed and dated in the lower right area. Measurements: 31 x 25 cm; 52 x 43 cm (frame). Bibliography - J. Damase, Sonia Delaunay, dessins en noir et blanc, Paris, 1978, p. 190 (illustrated on p. 112, with incorrect dimensions and dated "1926"). - E. Morano, Sonia Delauna, Art into Fashion, New York, 1986, p. 59 (illustrated). With her characteristic synthetic style in this piece Delaunay creates a figurative drawing, starring a woman. The piece in particular the clothing of the protagonist is reminiscent of some patterns that the artist made on canvas in the 1920s. Born Sonia Ilínichna Stern, Sonia Delaunay is better known by her married name, which she adopted after marrying Robert Delaunay. A French painter and designer of Ukrainian origin, she was, along with her husband, one of the main representatives of abstract art, as well as the creator of simultanism. She grew up in St. Petersburg, in contact with the collection of paintings of the Barbizon School of her uncle and with the cultural life of the city. In 1903 she moved to Germany to further her education, where she discovered contemporary painting and studied drawing with Schmidt-Reuter. Two years later he moved to Paris and enrolled in the Academie de la Palette, where he was also initiated in engraving by Grossman. During these years he approached the European avant-garde through German expressionism, with a work that also reveals echoes of post-impressionism. In 1908 he held his first exhibition, showing works from his recently initiated Fauvist period. Two years later he married Delaunay, with whom he shared aesthetic concerns. Their art then underwent a change of direction, towards abstraction. The artist will then move towards the decorative arts, always with a purely abstract colorist language that will attract the attention of her peers and also of the critics. Although in 1912 she returned to painting, her fame as a designer had already been established throughout Europe. From then on she would frequently participate in important European exhibitions, such as the Berlin Autumn Salon or the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. During the First World War she lived in Spain and Portugal, where she developed an intense creative activity, including collaboration with Diaghilev's ballet. In 1921 the couple returned to Paris, where Sonia Delaunay continued to work on important projects, in addition to exhibiting her work both in Europe and the United States. Already fully recognized from the fifties onwards, compilations of her work began to be published, and in fact in 1958 her first retrospective exhibition was dedicated to her in Bielefeld (Germany). In addition, in 1975 she was named officer of the French Legion of Honor. Currently Delaunay is represented in major collections around the world, including the MoMA in New York, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the Reina Sofia in Madrid, the Albertina in Vienna and Haifa in Israel.
