Original Erte Bronze "Fire Dancer" Limited Edition Art Deco Style Sculpture

About

"Fire Dancer" is an elegant, limited edition, cold-painted bronze sculpture by the father of Art Deco, the incomparable Erte, (1892-1990). Erte was born Romain De Tirtoff in St. Petersburg, Russia, to a socially prominent family. At age 18 he moved to Paris and changed his name to Erte, the French pronunciation of his initials. In 1915 he began to work for Harper's Bazaar, a very popular and widely read magazine, for which he designed the monthly cover for 22 years. During his very long and highly prolific career, he was best known for lavish costumes and set designs for the stage and screen. He defined and popularized the Art Deco movement and was one of the most prominent artists of the 1920s. His work is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum and the Smithsonian, among many others. During the Art Deco resurgence in the 1980s, Erte began producing limited edition bronze sculptures of his best illustrations. "Fire Dancer" is one of a limited production of 375 limited edition bronzes, and depicts an elaborately costumed dancing woman in a plumed headdress, with her right leg and left arm upraised, on a round, tiered pedestal. "Fire Dancer" is signed by Erte on the horizontal surface of the lowest step on the pedestal beneath and behind her left foot. On the vertical plane of the lowest step, beneath the signature of Erte, reads, "(copyright) 1990 CHALK & VERMILION and SEVEN ARTS xxx/375 (hallmark)". "Fire Dancer" retails for $18,500. Measures: 23.5" high by 6.5" deep by 10.5" wide. Weighs 16 pounds.
