Erte (1892-1990) Russian, "Feather Gown" Bronze

Lot 0010

Description

This is an exquisite bronze by Erte entitled "Feather Gown". It is a limited edition sculpture #162 out of 375, and is one of the most beautiful Erte pieces we've seen at this auction house.
Erte was born in Russia in 1892 and lived in Paris for one year, then fell in love with the art world there and decided to move to Paris to become a designer. His full name was Romain de Tirtoff, and he took the initials of his first and last name to become Erte (RT). He is perhaps most famous for his elegant fashion designs which captured the art deco style of the period. The sculpture here comes with an original bill of sale.
The size of the piece is 17 1/4 x 12 1/2 inches and would grace any home.
