Erte Born November 10th

Romain de Tirtoff was born November 10th, 1892 in St Petersburg, Russia. Tirtoff emigrated to France and specifically Paris in 1910 and would adopt the name "Erte" based on the French pronunciation of the initials R and T in his full name. Erte's work became synonymous with the Art Deco style of the twentieth century.
