Erte began his career doing stage designs in Paris in the ‘30s. By 1968 -- when this poster was done -- he was a living icon of the deco era. In this poster he returns to his roots in theatre. Using his signature art deco style, Erte bridges the tradition of a great deco poster design while at the same time making it very contemporary with the almost-psychedelic colors of the swinging – sixties.
