Sonia Delaunay made enormous contributions to the development of abstraction in the early 1900s. Sonia Delaunay: Art Is Life introduces young audiences to her art as Sonia and her six-year-old Charles embark on a magical road trip in their car, modelled after Sonia’s 1925 design for a Citroën convertible. Together they glide into a landscape made up of colours and shapes drawn from Sonia’s early abstract compositions – almost as if they’ve entered one of her paintings. Along the road, they make pit stops at ‘sites’ that inspired some of Sonia’s key paintings of this period (such as the dance hall depicted in her 1913 work Bal Bulier and the open air Portuguese market that was the subject of her 1915 painting Marché au Minho).
