Erte Sculpture
"For me, sculpting is a natural impulse; in my creative technique I conceive designs in three dimensions....  It is impossible for a fashion designer to produce a model of each design, so he must be content with a drawing.  Any designer is thus restricted to two dimensions, and a fashion designer is also confined to the physical proportions of the human being, a beautiful but rather predictable form.  Sculpting - working in three dimensions - has relieved me of these restrictions and has allowed me to exercise all of my creative impulses, including the use of color and the modeling of fantastic forms.  The greatest thrill of any fhsion designer is to see his drawing come to life - to rise from the flat page and be worked into cotumes that transform thw wearer into an object of beauty and desire.  Only when a design is realized can its success be properly judged.  I am filled with a sense of excitement whenever I see and touch a bronze from my Sculpture Collection, through which I have been able to see my drawings, thoughts, ideas, and dreams come to life as never before" (Excerpt "Erte Sculpture")

"Erte's sculpture yields fresh interpretations and images as one circles it.  For example, the front view of Beauty and the Beast, of a draped and plumed temptress, leaves one unprepared for the jarring reality of the young woman's bondage revealed on the rear.  Other pieces, such as Diva, Flames of Love, and L'Amour, aspire to nothing more, in the bold rhythms of their billowing scarves and plumage, than an image of sartorial splendor and theatricality, realized as forcefully from the side or rear as from the front.  It is surely significant that the editor of this book has chosen to depart from the usual practice of showing only one view of each sculpture, instead presenting two or three views of each." (Excerpt: "Erte Sculpture")
