Known as a key leader of the Art Deco movement, Romain de Tirtoff began designing clothes for his mother at the age of five. His breakthrough came after a brief collaboration with famed Parisian couturier Paul Poiret. Following his early design work, Tirtoff began using the pseudonym “Erté.” At the age of seventy-five, Erté embarked on a new career and produced a series of bronze sculptures. Four of these works by Erté are highlighted on the second day of the upcoming Ringling College Benefit Auction, presented by Sarasota Estate Auction.
