Abstraction is a movement that appeared at the beginning of the 20th century in opposition to figurative art, which more or less faithfully represents objects, characters, etc. This central movement in the history of contemporary art is one of the greatest artistic revolutions that exists. If you want to go back to the fundamentals and study this subject in more depth thanks to a few key artists, you've come to the right place!

Not only is Sonia Delaunay the star of a lovely backstory with a charming relationship, but she also is the mother of the Orphism art movement that would go on to inspire the future of abstract art.  If that wasn’t enough, she also became a set, costume, and fashion designer, starting multiple companies and even creating textiles that most likely influenced the Bauhaus school weaving style that became famous.
