Erte Scupltures from Barnett Fine Art

As a fashion designer, Erte was famous for creating his designs through graphics. With sculpting, he saw a means of liberating himself from the inherent restrictions of the two-dimensional page so that he could work on his designs in three dimensions. His preferred sculpting medium was bronze, and his works are well-known for their ornate, elegant designs.

The greatest thrill of any fashion designer is to see his drawing come to life – to rise from the flat page and be worked into costumes that transform the wearer into an object of beauty and desire. Only when a design is realized can its success be properly judged. I am filled with a sense of excitement whenever I see and touch a bronze from my sculpture collection, through which I have been able to see my drawings, thoughts, ideas, and dreams come to life as never before.” – Erte
