The Russian emigre artist Romain de Tirtoff is best known by the phonetic French rendering of his initials: Erte - and for many, Erte is Art Deco. In the course of his long life he was key to the development of the style in the 1920s, and lived to see its revival in the 1970s. This elegant, sumptuously illustrated volume surveys his life and work, including his jewellery, furnishings, magazine covers for Harper's and his seminal sets for the Ziegfeld Follies.
