Sonia Delaunay (1885–1979) was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Bard Graduate Center’s current exhibition, Sonia Delaunay: Living Art, showcases her remarkably diverse and interconnected body of work focused on the primacy of color and a synthesis of the arts.

The press response to the exhibition has been remarkable.The show is a New York Times’ Critic’s Pick, and critic Walker Mimms called it, “A playful but rigorous unearthing of 184 garments, artifacts and paintings … [that] seems designed to restore to view Sonia’s say.” The New Yorker’s Jackson Arn praised its presentation of “the brightest, most pulse-racingly colorful objects from an œuvre in which color is both the principal tool and the supreme ideal,” and Ariella Budick of the Financial Times said that works in the exhibition “slay me with joyful beauty.” Lance Esplund, writing for the Wall Street Journal, called Delaunay’s work “radiantly modern” and said that “the lavish exhibition and its doorstop catalogue constitute the first serious US appraisal [of her career] in over 20 years.”

Sonia Delaunay: Living Art is on view at Bard Graduate Center Gallery through July 7.
