About the Work

This image was created originally as a gouache in 1920. In 1907, Paul Poiret-who Erté would begin working for in 1913 was instrumental in setting a trend that would begin the concealment of hair when he dressed his models in turbans. By 1910, evening turbans were all the rage, showing off an exotic eastern influence that had originated in the Asian fashion movements as a style depicted by Poiret after the Ballets Russe. Poiret's influence can also be seen in the jupe-culotte or harem pant dress ensemble in this image. The harem pant was considered an attack on the social and political norms.

About the Artist

Erté was born Romain de Tirtoff in St. Petersburg, Russia on November 23rd, 1892 and was raised amidst Russia's social elite. At the age of five he created an evening gown for his mother and managed to persuade the adults to craft it, they were astounded by the results. In 1912, Romain left St. Petersburg for Paris at the age of nineteen with the aim of becoming an artist. After working with Paul " Le Magnifique" Poiret on several theatrical productions Romain, still under the pseudonym of Erte, began to work more independently. He hand-crafted original costume and fashion designs for many of the era’s most renowned actresses, including Joan Crawford, Lillian Gish, Marion Davies, Anna Pavlova, Norma Shearer, and others. His masterpieces for the stage included extravagant production designs at venues such as New York’s Radio City Music Hall, the Casino de Paris, and the Paris Opera. In 1915 he began his long professional relationship with Harper's Bazaar and created 240 covers for the esteemed magazine. For 6 months in 1916, Erté simultaneously worked with Vogue as well. As a result of his highly publicized success, Erté would later be called the father of the ‘Art Deco’ movement.
