I’ve been an admirer of the work of Robert and Sonia Delaunay so I just had to go to the new exhibition of the work of Sonia Delaunay at the Tate Modern.
So with some cheap train tickets I went with a friend to see the exhibition and went to a couple of others as well. yesterday we walked 12.5miles and the day before 7miles (we only arrived at 2.30).
My first stop was to the Horniman museum to see the Romanian Exhibition.
The Sonia Delaunay exhibition is well worth a visit and it was great to see worked that I have only looked at in books. The first time i saw her work was in the late 70’s when i went to an exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
I just had to buy a catalogue as soon as I came home (I just didn’t want to carry it around all day) so will have to be patient.
Here are a few images from my books that I already have.
The British Museum had an exhibition showing Bark Cloth from the Pacific. these designs could so easily be translated into quilts
We walked through Shoreditch to the Geffrey Museum.
I just love the graphics on the leaflets and spent some money buying more paint and paper from PaintWorks and Cowling and Willcox
And just had to make a visit to a couple of favourite shops
Here is the Covent garden Leaflet
My two new books arrived.
New ideas for a new quilt!
