Sonia Delaunay-Terk (1885 – 1979) broke artistic barriers between men and women, and expanded art’s boundaries. The co-founder of Orphism, Delaunay-Terk paved artistic ground by softening Cubism with realistic elements and rhythmic colors. Rejecting artistic standards, she filled her work with brilliant colors and strong, repeating patterns. Delaunay-Terk regarded fashion and household items as vital artworks, and created interior décor and clothing, often collaborating with esteemed designer, Coco Chanel. The winner of numerous awards, Delaunay-Terk was the first living female artist to exhibit at the Louvre.
