I was introduced to Erte by my Daddy, who liked graphic arts. That's the pseudonym of Romain de Tirtoff , Russian-born French illustrator of the 20th century. Frequently his work seems to be just a wonderful fashion statement!
Romain de Tirtoff aka Erte (after the french pronunciation of his initials)- famous designer from early 20th century. Many of his designs featured in Harpers Bazaar. His art is easily recognizable. He is by far my favorite designer of all times
