Erté Art Deco Lady & Leopard Silk Scarf

$150

About

'L' is for leopard! An iconic Art Deco image of a lady with a leopard forming the letter 'L' by Erté, a Russian-French artist best known for his stylized Art Deco designs, is beautifully reprinted on this long silk scarf from the late 20th century. The deep plum background is the perfect foil for the sensuous lady and her leopard in shades of yellow, brown, cognac and brick red with accents in gold and silvery gray. The extra long scarf has feathery fringed hems and rolled edges. Beautiful draped or sashed. CONDITION Very good vintage condition with a minor pull that is very faint and difficult to capture in a photograph. The scarf has been professionally cleaned and is ready for wear. MEASUREMENTS The scarf measures 54" from end to end x 11.75" wide.

About the Manufacturer

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.
