A display of prints and drawings by Ukrainian-born Jewish artist Sonia Delaunay (1885—1979), who spent most of her life in Paris as an artist as well as a designer of theater costume and decor, textiles, and book covers. Her work is characterized by the search for ''something fundamental'' and the dynamic between color and rhythm in the creative process. Most of the works on display were donated to the Museum in 1997 by art patron and collector Kay Merrill Hillman.
