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.
English-born American artist Edward Moran specialized in maritime paintings. He was best known for his series exploring important epochs in the United States’ marine history. A coastal painting by Moran is a key lot of this sale, showing large waves crashing against jagged rocks. Also highlighted is a piece by Bruce Crane, titled Month of November. Crane is best known for his golden-toned landscapes, often showing the fall and winter seasons. Browse the entire catalog and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
