Romain de Tirtoff

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. Erté is perhaps most famous for his elegant fashion designs which capture the art deco period in which he worked. One of his earliest successes was designing apparel for the French dancer Gaby Deslys who died in 1920.
His work may be found in the collections of several well-known museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); as well, a sizable collection of work by Erté can be found at Museum 1999 in Tokyo.

Perhaps you are wondering why I decided to add a post about this artist on my site, he has also created artwork in Art Deco style using bondage as a theme. These are offered (as reprint mainly) via Ebay every now and then.
