Item Description

A master of form and style, this limited edition original lithograph print by Erte titled ''Zsa Zsa'' is an eye-catching ode to the female form. Numbered 166/260 and hand signed by Erte in the bottom right hand corner, the framed piece measures 37'' x 22''. Framed in a silver metallic frame and triple matted in black, red, blue to compliment the colors on the artwork. The print is under glass and ready to hang and has been professionally appraised.

Both stylistically modern and compositionally classic, Erte's work (1892-1990) is revered around the world for its originality and thought provoking subject matter. Erte confounded expectation by creating his first successful costume design at the age of five and was finally allowed to move to Paris in 1912 to pursue his passion for fashion. Erte enjoyed a long career as a fashion illustrator for Harper's Bazaar magazine, and gained fame as the creator of gloriously extravagant costumes and stage sets for the Folies Bergere in Paris.
