IDBURY PRINTS

SONIA DELAUNAY (Ukrainian/French / 1885-1979)

Born Sonia Terk Stern, Sonia Delaunay married the painter Robert Delaunay in 1910. She was already an established artist under the name Sonia Terk, and had learned printmaking at the studio of Lucien Simon. Sonia Delaunay produced etchings and lithographs, but her most innovative prints used the pochoir stencil technique. She first used this to hand-colour the copies of her “livre simultané”, La Prose du Transsibérien, a collaboration with her friend, the poet Blaise Cendrars. She used it again for the 40 plates of Compositions, Couleurs, Idées in 1930, from which we offer a selection of plates.
