About the Item

Romain de Tirtoff known as ERTE (1892-1990) "Eve" Gouache decor project on paper Sheet Size : 14.6"H x 10.6"W (37 x 27 cm) Framed Size : 26"H X 22"W On the back, countersigned, numbered 8113, titled Eve, and bears the handwritten mentions Decor Romain de Tirtoff (23 November 1892 – 21 April 1990), known later as Erte, was born in St. Petersburg Russia in 1892. The only son of an admiral in the Imperial Fleet, he was raised amidst Russia’s social elite. As a young boy, the Persian miniatures he found in his father’s library fascinated him. These exotic, brightly patterned designs continued to be important to him and influenced the development of his style. He moved to Paris at the age of eighteen and took the name Erte, from the French pronunciation of his initials. In 1915 he began a relationship with Harper’s Bazaar, during which time he created over 240 covers for the magazine. His fashion designs also appeared in many other publications, making him one of the most widely recognized artists of the 1920’s. He designed costumes and sets for the theater, as well as limited edition prints, bronzes, and wearable arts. In 1976 the French government awarded Erte the title of Officer of the Arts and Letters, and in 1982 the Medaille de Vermeil de la Ville de Paris was bestowed upon him. Erte’s work has exhibited in prominent museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum in California, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England. Erte is credited as the originator of the Art Deco Movement, and his designs are still widely recognized today.
