About this title


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.
