Russian-born painter and designer, Romain de Tirtoff, who called himself Erté, was one of the foremost fashion and stage designers of the twentieth century. Well known for his designs for the music hall in Paris, he also did works for theatre and opera in Europe and the United States. Later in life he recreated the designs of his youth in serigraphy and bronze. He is widely known as the "Father of Arte Deco."
The collection consists of two serigraphs on paper, titled "Queen of Sheba" and "Michelle" and a cast bronze sculpture, "An Evening in 1921". All are limited editions, signed and numbered.
