Original serigraph by the well known and highly popular 20th century Russian-French artist ERTE (1892-1990), titled at bottom "Taurus", from the Zodiac Suite of the year 1982, numbered at lower left in pencil 32/350, and pencil signed at lower right by the artist. Size inside the mat/liner is 24 3/4" by 19 1/4" (34 1/4" by 29" in the black Art Deco style glossy framing). This is from the edition of 350, plus Roman Numeral edition of 90 and 35 artist's proofs. Erte is one of the western world's most recognizable artists, his Art Deco images, reproduced in limited editions, parts of collections around the world. He was born in Russia to upper class society, and moved to Paris while young. It was there that he developed the famous style and imagery which brought him fame late in life. See the net for much, much more information on the artist and his works. Condition is excellent overall, the paper bright and white. There might be a slight paper disturbance about 1/3" below the signature; I can't tell if it's from the original printing or perhaps acquired later. In any event one must look very closely to even notice it. See the blind stamp at lower left "Chromacomp Inc. New York". Allow for reflections in some images. .
