Sonia Terk Delaunay (Odessa, 14 November 1885 - Paris, 5 December 1979) was a French-born Ukrainian.  Born in Odessa, Ukraine but spent her

childhood in Hradyz'sk, a village near Kremenchuk.

He studied initially in St. Petersburg and in 1903 took a drawing course in Karlsruhe, Germany. In 1906 she moved to Paris, where she painted works

inspired by Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh and where, in 1910, she married the painter Robert Delaunay. 

Already oriented towards pure color painting, Sonia joined her husband in researching color and the refraction of light, in which the dynamic effect is

expressed only by the modulations of color and light which give the work a lyrical tone , arriving at the movement called Orphism.

Sonia Terk tried to take Orphism beyond the confines of painting: starting in 1913 she created fabrics with simultaneous contrasts, abstract creations of

paper and fabric and printing characters for books in simultaneous colours, i.e. with different chromatic relationships and typographic characters and with

text printed vertically.  Between the wars, Sonia made the first abstract dresses and joined her husband in some large decorations for the 1937 Paris

Universal Exposition. Sonia Terk Delaunay died on December 5, 1979 in Paris.

In March 1960, the Modern Art Gallery of Turin dedicated an exhibition to Robert and Sonia Delaunay, in which 107 works by the two artists appeared.

In April 2006 an exhibition dedicated to Sonia Delaunay was held in Bellinzona in Switzerland (Canton Ticino), at the Villa dei Cedri Museum.

In October 2014 a large retrospective of his was inaugurated at the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris, with an exhibition of around 400 works. In spring 2015

the same exhibition was presented at the Tate Gallery in London.
