Romain de Tirtoff (1892 – 1990) was a Russian-born French  artist and designer known by the pseudonym  Erté, the French pronunciation of his initials, R.T. He was a diversely-talented 20th century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including fashion, jewellery, graphic arts, costume and set design for film, theatre, and opera, and interior decor.
