Erte’s elegant and sophisticated “Gala” demonstrates his immense talent as both a fashion designer and an artist. The lifelike figurative work and fabric draping show a keen understanding of the human form while the meticulously crafted execution in bronze highlights his technical proficiency. The choice of colors in “Gala” shows something bolder and lighter than we would typically associate with the original Art Deco movement, in keeping with the updated aesthetic of the 1980s when it was created. This combination of influences from the 1920s and 1980s adds an element of modernity to the piece. Erte’s “Gala” bronze sculpture is 14 ¾” high and comes with a gallery certificate of authenticity.
