Sonia Terk was born in the Ukraine and settled in Paris in 1905, marrying the artist Robert Delaunay five years later. The couple became leading practitioners of what became known as 'Simultanism', an offshoot of Cubism and Futurism. They sought to distil a multitude of different 'modern' experiences and present them simultaneously in a single picture.
