Erte was a Russian-born French artist and designer known by the pseudonym Erté; the French pronunciation of his initials, R.T. for Romain de Tirtoff (23 November 1892 – 21 April 1990). He was a diversely talented 20th-century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design for film, theatre, and opera and interior decor. This is my second interpretation of his work called The Glance.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
