Original Photograph Signed, sepia toned - ERTÉ (Romain de Tirtoff) - 1919. 
- The 27 year old Erté is shown sitting on a balustrade holding his cat in his arms with palms trees in the background. The photo mat shows sizing notations for printing in the March 1919 issue of "Harper's" according to the docketing on verso of the mat. Above the photo, to the left an arrow is explained, "Take the line out of picture." With his distinctive signature, he writes in pen on the lower right portion of the photographer's mat, "Erté." The mat shows soiling along the margins, slight bends at corners and a rust stain from a paper clip. Erté signed a contract with "Harper's Bazar" magazine in 1915 and for the next 21 years, he contributed dazzling fashion covers in the Art Deco style as well as original fashion drawings. His design style has resonated through the decades since his time at "Harper's" and continues into contemporary design. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
