Erte (birth name birth name Romain de Tirtoff), the famed
fashion and stage designer, was born in 1892 to a wealthy
family in St. Petersburg, Russia. Erte is considered by many
as the epitomy of flamboyance and longevity in 20th century
art and design. Erte, even as a child, did not wish
to follow his fathers footsteps into the military, who was
an Admiral in the Imperial Russian Navy.
