I've been meaning to do a blog post on Erté for a very long time. After all, he is possibly one of the most famous and well known of all the Art Deco artists. I used to be crazy about Erté when I was a little girl as I had a colouring in book of his drawings. These days my favourite Art Deco pin up boy is George Barbier but now that I look at Erté's work again I can see what attracted me to him and why he is still incredibly popular. He's so over the top stylised and flamboyant! His illustrations are pure fantasy and a lot of fun.
....and it's the weekend! How nice is that?
