Erté is the master of the Art Deco style. His fashion designs frequently appeared in "Art et Industrie," "L'Illustration," "Femina," "Le Gaulois Artistique," "Plaisir de France," "The Sketch" and "Illustrated London News." In 1929, Erté contributed an article on fashion to the 14th edition of The Encyclopedia Brittanica. Erté's contribution to the art of the Twenties was honored in the important exhibition, "Les Annes 25" at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris in 1996. It commemorated the famous exhibition of 1925, which revealed the emergence of a new concept in fashion design, art and decoration.
