Sonia Delaunay, original name Sofia Ilinitchna Turk, was a Ukrainian-born French painter, illustrator, and textile designer who was a pioneer of abstract art in the years before the First War. In 1964, she became the only woman to have had an exhibition at the Louvres in her own lifetime.

Delaunay’s work has been offered at auction multiple times, the record price being 1,856,557 USD for Prismes Electrique sold at Christie’s, Paris in 2017.
