B Plate the Alphabet, Erté 'After', 1986

About

B plate, the alphabet is a beautiful color ceramic plate realized by Erté (after) in 1986, as reported on the back of each plates. This plate reproduces the original painting by Erté (Romain de Tirtoff) from the series "The Alphabet", representing the letter B. In excellent condition. Erté started to create the series of Alphabet paintings in 1927, after a very successful exhibition at the Galerie Charpentier in Paris. Erté said about this series: “The result was that in 1929, when my second exhibition opened, The Alphabet had not made much progress. From then on, little by little, I did complete one or two letters between various urgent commissions, but it was only forty years later that I finished the set. In 1967 (I was asked to) exhibit The Alphabet at an Erté show in London. This time I was ready, or at least I thought I was. While preparing to send the pictures to London, I suddenly noticed to my astonishment that one letter was missing in the series; it was the letter “L”. I began to paint it immediately and completed it just in time for the show. As it turned out, this letter became the most successful of all in the eyes of the public”.
