Art Deco Master Of Graphic Art and Illustration
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Full-colour illustrated ebook. An incredible illustrated ebook in the Masterworks series, ideal for iPad. Perhaps no individual is more associated with the 20th century art deco revival than Russian-born French artist and designer, Erté. Although his talent spanned many creative fields, Erté is perhaps best-known for his theatre and fashion designs, which were often later translated into beautiful silkscreen prints. Few can fail to be charmed by Symphony in Black, one of his most famous designs depicting a slender figure walking her dog. Throughout his lifetime Erté designed over 200 covers for Harper's Bazaar and his works have been reproduced and copied countless times since, oozing a timeless air of class and sophistication. Combining fresh and thoughtful text and beautiful illustrations, including jewellery and sculpture inspired by his two-dimensional designs, this stunning ebook is the definitive Erté companion. Best viewed on an iPad with a retina display: it's a large book but it's worth it!
