This lithography is extremely rare and appreciated considering its format (the largest lithography of the artist), the low circulation (75 copies) and the importance given by the artist herself to this composition since she This composition will be declined on various tapestries, earthenware ... It is also very interesting because it synthesizes alone the contribution of sonia and robert delaunay to the history of art. Indeed, it is by the lyricism of the color that sonia delaunay seeks here to escape the monotonous discipline of cubism.
It applies to search for rhythms, ie movements perceived by the viewer through the repetition of shapes, the juxtaposition of colors and different tones used. These rhythms also introduce time into the structure of the painting and create sensations of space, depth and light. These are the main principles of the movement simultanism created by the delaunay are illustrated here. This composition was first a gouache of 104 x 74 cm made by the artist in 1938 which was also retained as a key work of the exhibition of houston in 1980 devoted to the artist (see the poster photo in our possession). She was also the subject of an aubusson tapestry that sonia delaunay entitled "little autumn" (see photo of the tapestry).
"The true painting will begin when we understand that color has a life of its own, that the infinite combinations of color have their poetry and poetic language more expressive than by ancient means. It is a mysterious language in relation to vibrations, the very life of color. In this area there are infinite possibilities. Abstraction has its origins in the scientific understanding of visual and sound perceptions but also in esotericism and spirituality.It will lead these artists to abandon the representation of reality for a liberation of color and line. For sonia delaunay and members of this artistic trend, it's a personal, thoughtful, philosophical and emotional approach. The delaunay will enrich this approach with their travels, the surrounding political context but also wild, expressionist and cubist movements that they assimilate while adding their experience. In the history of art, abstraction is not only a movement, it appears as a break between 1910 and 1920. Sonia delaunay holds a preponderant place in this new pictorial concept, guided by the theories of michel eugene chevreul on the interdependence of color, she explores the play of contrasts created by the juxtaposition of colors and tones. The delaunay then proclaim the birth of a global art based on the constructive and dynamic power of color: simultanism. The artist then gives full power to the color and forms that replace the traditional means of representation (figurative drawing and perspective) going to replace the subject itself. The color becomes subject and the painting abstraction, the vibration of the juxtaposed colors creates the movement. The intensity of the tones, the superposition of the planes and the opposition of the colors give the simultaneous sensations of space, depth and light. From 1945 and especially during the 50s, the artist advocates the integration of art into life and his art becomes a means of expression or combinations of colors and shapes will be available in other media: illustrated books, clothes, tapestries, design with everyday objects in limited edition .. sonia delaunay therefore appears as the essential link between the generation of the pioneers of abstraction and that of the rising glories of abstract art. The 60s see the consecration of the artist with a first retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.
This important composition in the career of the artist began with a gouache in 1938 and will be chosen to appear on the poster of the exhibition devoted to sonia delaunay at the Museum of Fine Arts of Houston in 1980 (see poster photo in our possession). She will also be the subject of an aubusson tapestry which she will call "little autumn".
It can also be noted that this composition is regularly repeated to illustrate in the press or on the internet the work of sonia delaunay because it is typical of her. His motifs exude a great poetic sensibility thanks to their brilliant, luminous forms and the "sensual singing of color". The modern art museum of the city of Paris has organized a second and important retrospective devoted to sonia delaunay in 2014 which shows the innovator of abstraction and the brilliant colorist through his paintings and prints (lithographs). As you can see when watching the video the composition "autumn rhythms" still holds a prominent place.
