Erté (pseudonym for Roman Petrovich Tyrtov, 1892-1990) was a Russian Art Deco illustrator, graphic artist, costume & set designer. He created the covers for Harper’s Bazaar in the twenties and thirties and many other illustrated magazines. His distinctive, elegant drawings helped to form what we think of as typical Art Deco style.
