About Erte Bronze
An Erte bronze is a master designer's sketchbook come to life. Romain de Tirtoff, known as Erte for his French initials, began as a designer of Broadway costumes and design sets in Hollywood. Since, Erte artwork is present in formats such as jewelry and sculpture, but the bronze statue is the dimensional culmination of these. The Erte bronze sculptures are excruciating in detail with a restraining balance that accentuates the inspiration of his art, which is Art Deco fashion. The detailed Erte bronze figures are often embellished with precious gemstone jewelry and Art Deco wardrobes portraying what inspired the piece, which is often reflected in its name. Many collections, displays, and museums, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, feature Erte pieces. The father of Art Deco, an Erte bronze is instantly recognizable, but most often includes signature, number, and certificate of authenticity. Browse the vast inventory on eBay to find that certain piece to define your collection or add to your realm of Erte collectibles with limited edition prints, bronzes, and wearable art.
