Lady Falconer - Graduation Greeting Card
INSIDE GREETING: Congratulations graduate!
For a chic graduate, this formidable and empowered woman graced the cover of the March 1919 issue of Harper's Bazar (later renamed Harper's Bazaar). Crafted by the artist Erté, this work is part of his long-standing collaboration with the fashion and society magazine, spanning from 1910 to 1938. The statuesque figure embodies a timeless fusion of classic and modern elements, exuding confidence as she gazes toward the dawning sun of the future. See this image as an art print!
Erté (1892-1990), whose birth name was Romain de Tirtoff, was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. After collaborating with the renowned Paul "Le Magnifique" Poiret on various theatrical productions, Erté ventured into independent work. He crafted stunning costume and fashion designs for the most celebrated actresses of his time, like Joan Crawford, Lillian Gish, and Norma Shearer, to name a few. His breathtaking stage designs graced iconic venues such as New York's Radio City Music Hall and the Paris Opera. His artistic design work in the fields of fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design for film, theatre, opera, and interior decor rightfully earned him the title, "The Father of the Art Deco Movement."
