still feeling colorful
There's an exhibition dedicated to Sonia Delaunay at the Fondazione Bevilacqua in Venice.

Along with her husband, Robert, Sonia Delaunay developed the techniques of Orphism and Simultanism, based on abstract harmonies of colours and design. And the idea that color is supreme to form.
Sonia also illustrated poems, exhibited paintings, decorated pottery and, after the loss of her family fortune in the Russian Revolution of 1917, made a living by designing textiles, dresses and book-bindings. She decorated her home by writing poetry on her walls.

After spending time in Madrid during the First World War, she opened her Atelier Simultane in Paris, designing fashion, textiles and interiors. At the 1925 Paris Exposition she ran the Boutique Simultanee where she achieved fame as a designer of modern fashions. In the 1930's the Delaunays concentrated on public art and advertising, and at the 1937 Paris Exposition they designed a series of large murals.

Painting is sensation and you can transform any Daily Object via color.
