In Sonia Delaunay-Terk’s energetic “Tango Bal,” flamelike figures flicker in an inferno of color. Delaunay-Terk (1885 – 1979) co-founded Orphism with her husband Robert, softening Cubism with realistic elements and rhythmic colors. Going against artistic tradition, her work pulsed with vivid hues and strong, repeating patterns. Believing that fashion and household items were also art, she created interior décor and clothing, often collaborating with prominent designer, Coco Chanel. Delaunay-Terk won numerous awards and was the first living female artist to exhibit at the Louvre.
