Art Week: Erté

Erté Name

Erté.  Where to begin?  He is one of the Godfathers of Art Deco.  His Russian upbringing mixed with his residency in Paris spawned an artistic genius.  Every stroke of each painting radiated with elegance and commanded attention.  His creations graced covers of Harper’s Bazar and appeared in Vogue, Cosmopolitan and a host of additional publications.  Erté’s flexible hands gave way to a career that spanned decades and begat more than paintings.  He designed theatre sets and costumes, made wearable art and designed apparel for prestigious entertainers.  I have not encountered an Erté design that I dislike, which made choosing a selection extremely difficult.  All are wonders.

Erté.  A dónde empiezo?  Es un padrino de la época de Arte Deco.  Su crianza rusa mezclada con su residencia en  retrato emitió elegancia y comandó atención.  Sus creaciones adornaron las portadas de Harper’z Bazar y aparecieron en Vogue, Cosmopolitan y otras publicicaciones.  Las manos flexibles de Erté le permitieron tener una carera que duró muchas décadas y creó más que retratos.  Él diseñó escenas disfraces del teatro, hizo arte para llevar y diseñó ropa para artistas prestigiosos.  No he visto ningun diseñó de Erté que no me gusta.  Por eso fue tan difícil eligir una seleción para incluir.  Todos son especiales
