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, opera and interior decor. This is my interpretation of his work called The Black Rose.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
