This spring, Skissernas Museum – Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art will be showcasing Sonia Delaunay’s monumental paintings Propeller, Aeroplane Engine and Dashboard. They were created for the Aviation Pavilion at the World’s Fair in Paris in 1937 and have been permanently exhibited in the Museum’s International Gallery since 1966.
At the same time, documentary material about Delaunay’s artistic work for the exhibition in Paris and the Museum’s acquisition of the large paintings will be displayed. Original graphics from the Museum’s collection will provide examples of Sonia Delaunay’s pioneering, abstract pattern and colour compositions – works that have influenced artists for decades and continue to inspire today!
