If you know someone who appreciates fine art, there is no better time than now to purchase a new artwork for his or her home or office.

Celestial Love Affair

Celestial Love Affair – Rene LaLonde Celestial Love Affair is a hand-pulled  serigraph on  Gesso board by Canadian artist Rene LaLonde.  LaLonde uses bright and unusual colors to blend the styles of Cubism, Fauvism and Surrealism. His works will delight your senses. LaLonde’s work is vivid and exciting yet at the same time warm and inviting, projecting  a sense of calmness and serenity. LaLonde focuses on everyday subjects and puts his own personal twist on them, similar to a Pop artist. This complex painting will complement your home or office and give your room a fresh and vibrant feel.


Erte Romain de Tirtoff was born in Russia in 1892.  At a young age he began designing clothes for his mother and later went to Paris to further his fashion design career.  It was in France that he became widely known as Erte, the French pronunciation for “R” “T” (Romain de Tirtoff).  While living in Paris, Erte designed for the stage, screen, opera, the cover of Harper’s Bazaar and more. His work heavily influenced a new art movement that would be known as “Art Deco”.  Erte became known as “The Father of Art Deco.” Many of Erte’s fashion and costume designs have been translated to limited edition works of art in nearly every medium. If you are looking for a gift or work of art to add to your home  consider crystal flutes, a hand or table mirror or other works from his Object of Art collection,  Erte’s designs come to life in any room. flute About Barnett Fine Art Barnett Fine Art is located in New Orleans, Louisiana.
