Synopsis: 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.

Book Description E. P. Dutton, E-101, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Limited Edition. Hardcover. 4to. E. P. Dutton. 1989. 240 pgs. Illustrated with Color / Black and White Plates. First Edition/First Printing. Number 2 of 250 limited signed copies. Slipcased. Acetate DJ lightly rubbed and worn. Back silk slipcase lightly rubbed. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards clean with no wear present. Romain de Tirtoff (1892 - 1990) was a Russian-born French artist and designer known by the pseudonym Erté, from the French pronunciation of his initials. He was a diversely talented 20th-century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design for film, theater, and opera, and interior decor. Erté is perhaps most famous for his elegant fashion designs which capture the art deco period in which he worked. His delicate figures and sophisticated, glamorous designs are instantly recognizable, and his ideas and art still influence fashion into the 21st century. His costumes, program designs, and sets were featured in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1923, many productions of the Folies Bergère, and George White's Scandals.
