A woman poised in three different outfits / hats according to the season. Below the banner reads "If You Stay In The Land Of Neice...." The sheet is 11" x 12 1/2", image 7 1/4" x 9" and frame 16 7/8' x 20 7/8" The sheet is floating in a double matted presentation of cream and white. It is presented in a simple wood frame under glass. Erté was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century and is closely identified as a leader of the Art Deco period. After more than half a century of international acclaim as a designer of sets and costumes for productions such as Folies-Bergère, George White's Scandals, and several Hollywood films, and as the designer of fashions and covers that gave Harper's Bazzar the image of elegance it projected in 1920's and 30's. Erté (the French pronunciation of his initials R.T.) after half a century of leading work began the project of producing limited editions of his most famous pieces from the past along with new creations. As art critic John Ashbery wrote: "It is given to few artists to achieve fame ..... and then to re-emerge late in life to even greater fame." Now, thirty years after his death, his works are still is high demand and originals such as this, even more scarce.

About the Artist

Erté

Born Romain de Tirtoff (1892–1990) in St. Petersburg, Russia, to an aristocratic family, the artist known as Erté — a pseudonym derived from the French pronunciation of his initials — was a Renaissance man of the art and design world. He worked in graphic arts, interior design, fashion, jewelry and set design for the stage and silver screen, becoming a leader of the Art Deco style.Moving to Paris in 1912, Erté worked as a fashion designer under couturier Paul Poiret before securing a job with Harper’s Bazaar as a cover artist. Over 22 years, Erté created more than 240 magazine covers alongside his ongoing work in fashion design. Extending his prolific career into theater sets, costumes, prints and lithographs, he became one of the most famous artists of the era. Erté’s style — a combination of the nature-inspired flourishes of Art Nouveau and bold, geometric linework — directly contributed to the birth of Art Deco, earning him the nickname “the Father of Art Deco.”After a lull of creative production in the 1940s and 1950s, Erté reentered the public eye in the 1960s, when a renewed interest in Art Deco had taken shape. Creating colorful lithographs, bold serigraphs (silk-screen prints) and bronze sculptures, he contributed to a resurgence of the style in France and beyond. This late-life acclaim for his art led to exhibitions in museums and galleries all over the world as well as his first published monograph in 1970. That same year he was awarded the title of Chevalier du Mérite Artistique et Cultural and in 1976 was named Officier des Arts et Lettres by the French government. Today, Erté’s works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and LACMA in Los Angeles..On 1stDibs, browse a collection of Erté art, including fine-art prints, paintings and other works.
