I love Sonia !


For some time, i was highly influenced by Sonia
Delaunay's textile designs. Luckily for me, i found
my own way after a while, but her work's still an
enormous refreshment when i feel the need of
charging up again. Her art radiates so much
vitality and joy that it makes me happy, just by
looking at it. Couldn't choose, so i posted a lot:)

The poet René Crevel and the short story writer
Madame X (Jacqueline Chaumont) in costumes
for Tzara's 'Le Coeur à Gaz', 1923

of her own design, in front of various pictures
and drawings, around 1970.









Are you charged up again?
Anyway, i am, :)
