"All-around beautiful and worth picking up for anyone interested in fashion, theatre, theatrical costuming, and art." —Looking for a Good Book
"This book is an absolute delight for any fan of costume design history, and it is sure to inspire budding theatrical designers. Brilliant and colorful." — bookaddiction
A fan-bearing slave girl, a worshipper of Horus, the wife of a Russian boyar, Ceres, a mermaid, and a gypsy dancer are among the 49 theatrical costumes selected for this tribute to the work of the Russian-born, Paris-bred designer Erté (Romain de Tirtoff). Spanning the years 1911 to 1975, these extravagant, imaginative designs include costumes for well-known personalities, Folies-Bergère shows, editions of George White's Scandals, and ballets.
Many exotic and historical fashions include Egyptian, Chinese, Persian, Japanese, Russian, and French styles. The lavish, flowing costumes are complemented by different colors to create different moods: deep, lustrous purples, reds, and browns for dynamic, vibrant figures; ochre, sienna, orange, and beige for more formal characters; and pale blue, lavenders, greens, grays, and blacks for people of mystery and hidden powers. As dazzling as Erté’s color graphics and as witty as his fashion designs, this compilation merits the attention of costume designers, artists, theater people, costume aficionados, and all who appreciate the treatment of costume design as a fine art.

About the Author:

Born Romain de Tirtoff, the Russian-born, Paris-bred artist Erté (1892–1990) ranks among the foremost fashion and theatrical designers of the 20th century. When he produced his first lithographs at the age of 76, art lovers thrilled to discover that he had found a new medium for his extraordinary talents.

Book Description Dover Publications. Paperback. Condition: New. 48 pages. Dimensions: 12.1in. x 9.1in. x 0.2in.A fan-bearing slave girl, a worshipper of Horus, the wife of a Russian boyar, Ceres, a mermaid and a gypsy dancerare among the 49 theatrical costumes that have been selected for this volume from the vast and widely praised output of the Russian-born, Paris-bred designer Ert (Romain de Tirtoff). Spanning the years 1911 to 1975, these extravagant, imaginative costumesall done for specific actual productionsinclude costumes for great or notorious personalities (the music-hall and musical-comedy star Gaby Deslys, the opera soprano Ganna Walska), Folies-Bergre shows, editions of George Whites Scandals, and ballets. Many exotic and historical styles are evoked, including Egyptian, Chinese, Persian, Japanese, Russian, Louis XIV and Louis XVI. A flowing lavishness of costume is complemented by different colors to create different moods: deep, lustrous purples, reds, and browns for dynamic, vibrant figures; ochre, sienna, orange and beige for more formal characters; and pale blues, lavenders, greens, grays, and black for people of mystery and hidden powers. Other magnificent costumes represented in this collection include: Balthasar, one of the three Magi, for the show Legendary Kings at the Thtre Fmina in Paris, 1919; Lantern-bearer, for the show Treasures of Indochina at the Alcazar music hall in Marseilles, 1922; Costume for La Traviata, 1935; Pierrot; for the Opera Ball at the Bal Tabarin in Paris, 1937; Madame Butterfly, for the show Heroines at the Teatro Caldern in Barcelona, 1945; Octopus, for the show The Bottom of the Sea, 1946. Ert, like Bakst, is one of the few designers who treated costume design as a fine art; his works in this genre are not only up to his own high standards, but are among the finest costume designs ever done. As dazzling as his color graphics, as witty as his fashion designs, Erts Theatrical Costumes in Full Color deserves the attention of all costume designers, artists, theater people, and costume aficionados. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780486238135
