Print by Russian-born French artist and designer Erté (1892-1990) depicts a female figure in a stylish black and blood orange gown against a background of neutral grey. Printed for Erté’s 90th birthday celebration, this print by the Walton Street Gallery in Chicago advertises a retrospective for the famed designer’s graphic work in November of 1982. Housed in an eye-catching Art Deco style frame, this rare print has some mild water damage on the edge of the print and is unsigned. About the Artist: Erté (1892-1990) was born Romain de Tirtoff in St. Petersburg, Russia to an admiral father amongst the social elite. He grew up surrounded by the elegant women of his mother’s social circle, fascinated by their fashion and exotic souvenirs of his father’s travels. He left Russia at 19 and headed to Paris to begin his fashion career under the pseudonym Erté, a play on his initials. He designed costumed and designed fashions for renowned actresses and stage productions. In 1915, he began his 20 year partnership with Harper’s Bazaar which cemented his reputation as the Father of Art Deco. The 1940s and 1950s were comparatively obscure for Erté, and his career was revitalized through colorful lithographic prints and sculptures.
