Romain de Tirtoff (23 November 1892 – 21 April 1990) was a Russian- born artist  and designer known by the pseudonym Erté, from the French pronunciation of his initials. He was a diversely talented 20th-century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including  fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design and set design for film, theatre, and opera, and interior decor. 
Erté continued working throughout his life, designing revues, ballets, and operas. He had a major rejuvenation and much lauded interest in his career during the 1960s with the Art Deco revival. He branched out into the realm of limited edition prints, bronzes, and wearable art.
Two years before his passing, Erté created seven limited edition bottle designs for Courvoisier to show the different stages of the cognac-making process, from distillation to maturation.
Just an amazing talent in so many way. I fell in love with him the first time I laid eyes on his work.
I love animal prints and always admired a similar painting of Erte', of course because I adore cats
of all breeds.
