Russian by birth, roman Petrovich Tyrtov became Romain de Tirtoff after moving to France, and abbreviated his name to Erté (the French pronunciation of 'R.T.') to avoid shaming his father who disapproved of his choice of career. A distinctive artist and designer, he is perhaps best known for his sinuous and stylish fashion designs, showing willowy women against stylized settings and patterns. instantly recognizable, his glamorous women perfectly capture the art deco elegance of their time, and a pleasingly varied selection of these are presented in this calendar. The cover and insides are glittered and each month is accompanied by a splendid extract of poetry that reflects the exquisite nature of its partner image. Also available in a slim, mini and diary format.
