The story of Erte's life is a chronicle of the worlds of fashion, theater, and elegance in the Twentieth Century. In My Life/My Art (for Erte his life is his art, and vice versa) he takes us through these worlds introducing us in words and photographs to the fabulous people he has known: Poret, Mata Hari, William Randolph Hearst, George White, Lucrezia Bori, Louis B. Mayer, Ramon Novarro, Joan Crawford, Claudette Colbert, Elsa Schiaparelli, Cecil Beaton, Diaghilev, Billy Rose, Barbra Streisand, and amny more. This volume absorbs and updates Erte's 1874 memoir Things I Remember and brings the story up to the present.

From the Publisher:

More than just an account of his life, Erte provides in My Life/My Art a broad, illustrated survey of his work. Fine examples of each category - fashion design, magazine covers, theater design, graphics, industrial design, sculpture, objets d'art, jewelry, medallions, posters, etc. - are handsomely reproduced in color on fine coated paper. This is the definitive Erte book for those who collect or just admire his work.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

At that period of my life I was rather fond of the social whirl. It intrigued me because it was still a novelty. As a boy in St. Petersburg, with the exception of family dinners and celebration, I had gone to very few parties. Since my sister and most of my cousins were several years older than myself, my childhood had been unusually solitary. But my "social-butterfly" phase in Paris was soon over, and the parties began to seem boring and monotonous. Above all, they interfered with hard, conscientious work for which I always had a consuming passion. As I achieved some degree of success, I began to feel more and more strongly that I had a responsibility to develop, to the highest possible point, the talent God had given me. This feeling of responsibility became a motivating force in shaping the future course of my life. It is still one of the cornerstones of my artistic and personal credo.
