Sonia and Robert Delaunay at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris

Name a more iconic artist duo, I dare you.

Sonia Terk already had some fame as an artist when she met Robert Delaunay in 1909. From the moment they met, the couple worked alongside each other, but also together on several projects. In 1938 for example they both created works to be used as the “Grandes décorations” to decorate the Railroad Palace and the “Palais d’Air” in Paris. The paintings mimic the rhythm of life in the modern city, also enclosed in the titles of the work, and served by the dynamic of colours.

The works are displayed in the main hall of the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris (@museedartmodernedeparis) and make a stunning sight next to each other.
