Here is a new design inspired by a painting which dates back to Sonia Delaunay's (1885-1979) work focusing on abstraction and color, and originally titled VALET DE PIQUE in French and dated 1964. See the original drawing, not the card, but one of her studies for the cards, and with her own signature written in, illustrated left. An interesting website on Delaunay's card designs is available at SimultanÃª Playing Cards, with the following comment:
"[Sonia Delaunay] united the rigour of simple geometric forms with an inner life and poetry which emanated from the richness of colour, the musicality of rhythm, the vibrant breath of the execution. She brought order and lyricism together: colour, geometry and rhythm."
