Perhaps no individual is more associated with the 20th century art deco revival than Russian-born French artist and designer, Erté. Although his talent spanned many creative fields, Erté 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.
