An Artist Who Expressed Her Art in Fabric

I religiously read certain sections of the NY Times.  On Wednesdays, I always read the Food section, on Thursdays the Home Section, and on Fridays, the Weekends Arts section.  This Friday, there was an article on an exhibit on artist Sonia Delaunay's work.  I was very intrigued.  As an artist, she worked in many mediums include fabric designs.  She was known for her abstract designs.  In fabric, many of her designs were geometric but done in various colorways.  As a needlepointer, I am intrigued by designs done in different colorways.

The exhibit on her work is at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.  You can also read the article in the NY Times.
