This summer the museum is presenting the first exhibition in Spain to be entirely devoted to Sonia Delaunay. Its intention is to emphasise not only her important role as an avant-garde painter but also the way in which she successfully applied her aesthetic ideas to everyday life. Delaunay’s work as a painter will be exhibited in the museum’s galleries alongside her designs for books, theatrical sets, interiors, fashion and textiles. There will be more than 200 exhibits loaned from public institutions such as the Centre Pompidou, and the Museo Reina Sofía, as well as from private collections. The exhibition will reflect on recent art-historical research which has reassessed Delaunay’s career with the aim of highlighting the multi-disciplinary nature of her work. Find out more about the Sonia Delaunay exhibition from the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza’s website.
