Romain de Tirtoff (23 November 1892 – 21 April 1990) was a Russian-born Frenchartist and designer known by the pseudonym Erté, from the French pronunciation of his initials (pronounced: er-té). He was a diversely talented 20th-century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including fashion,jewellerygraphic artscostume and set design for film, theatre, and opera, and interior decor.

Erté is perhaps most famous for his elegant fashion designs which capture the art deco period in which he worked.

His work may be found in the collections of several well-known museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); as well, a sizable collection of work by Erté can be found at Museum 1999 in Tokyo.
