Erte's (Romain de Tirtoff 1892-1990) - "Kiss of Fire" limited edition framed serigraph signed and numbered 146/300. This is in excellent condition, and has been beautifully professionally custom framed under glass.

Romain de Tirtoff (23 November 1892 - 21 April 1990) was a Russian-born French artist and designer known by the pseudonym Erte, from the French pronunciation of his initials (pronounced AIR TAY). He was a 20th-century artist and designer in an array of fields, including fashion, jewellery, graphic arts, costume and set design for film, theatre, and opera, and interior decor.
Erte is perhaps most famous for his elegant fashion designs which capture the art deco period in which he worked. One of his earliest successes was designing apparel for the French dancer Gaby Deslys who died in 1920. His delicate figures and sophisticated, glamorous designs are instantly recognizable, and his ideas and art still influence fashion into the 21st century. His costumes, programme designs, and sets were featured in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1923, many productions of the Folies Bergere, Bal Tabarin, Theatre Femina, Le Lido and George White's Scandals. On Broadway, the celebrated French chanteuse Irene Bordoni wore Erte's designs.
Please note that there may be a small amount of glare in the photograph. There are no chips or cracks in the glass.
