Signed, limited edition on Art Deco designer

THIS JUST IN: Here are two volumes devoted to the work of the early 20th century Russian-French designer Erté, who turned his artistic talents to costume and set design for opera, film, and theater, graphic arts, jewelry, and fashion as well as interior decor. From the mid-teens to the late 1930s, Erté designed more than 200 covers for Harper’s Bazaar. His illustrations also appeared in Vogue, Ladies’ Home Journal, and Cosmopolitan. His real name was Romain de Tirtoff, but he used Erté (the French pronunciation of his initials) so as to not offend his Russian family, who wanted him to become a naval officer like his father. One title is a limited edition signed by the artist. To enquire about this set, please call (727) 822-3278.
