Perhaps no individual is more associated with the 20th century art deco revival than Russian-born French artist and designer, Erte. Although his talent spanned many creative fields, Erte is perhaps best-known for his theatre and fashion designs, which were often later translated into beautiful silkscreen prints. Few can fail to be charmed by Symphony in Black, one of his most famous designs depicting a slender figure walking her dog. Throughout his lifetime Erte designed over 200 covers for Harper's Bazaar and his works have been reproduced and copied countless times since, oozing a timeless air of class and sophistication. Combining fresh and thoughtful text and beautiful illustrations, including jewellery and sculpture inspired by his two-dimensional designs, this coffee-table book is the definitive Erte companion.
