Sonia Delaunay: Portugaise assise (1915-16)

“The artist’s main purpose in Portugaise assise is not simply to represent a local woman, at her work, but to study light – the particularly warm and clear light of northern Portugal, which Delaunay has divided and recomposed into a riotous cacophony of colour and movement that immerses the viewer in the raucous, sensual atmosphere…
