Stencil print with hand-brushed gouache colours. 1962. Signed in pencil. Numbered from the total edition of 80. Printed at the studio of M.P.D (the greatest stencil printer of the period). Issued by Galerie Denise René, Paris 1962, in the series: Poésie de Mots - Poésie de Couleurs. 1962.   Note: The ‘Poesies de Mots’ series includes six compositions inspired by great 20th century French poets. Executed by Delaunay in individually  hand-painted gouache stencil they are amongst the very greatest examples of Delaunay’s colour ‘Simultanéisme’ (simultaneous contrast). Developed by Sonia Delaunay with her husband Robert in the 1920’s this concept used juxtapositions of pure colour and shape to create a visual spatial structure and movement. In the post-war years Sonia developed these ideas to a peak of creativity, especially using the control of form which the print media allowed.   This composition was inspired by the Delteil poem: Ah, comme la femme va devenir une chose fabuleuse'. ‘Oh how women will become something fabulous’.   Bibliography: J.Castro - Sonia Delaunay La Moderne no 62.   Superb impression with brilliant perfect colours. On cream wove Johanniot Rives paper. Exceptionally fine condition.  Printed to the full sheet size, as issued. Sheet: 650x502mm.
