Our glittering statement brooch celebrates the work of Romain de Tirtoff (French, born Russia, 1892-1990), better known as Erté. This classic Manhattan skyscraper is crafted in satin-finished 18K gold plate and decorated with 130 Swarovski® crystals-a dazzling piece that will elevate your look to new heights. The artist enjoyed a multifaceted career as a costume and set designer; he is especially renowned for the fabulous covers he created for Harper’s Bazaar magazine from 1915-1936. The Met houses an important collection of Erté’s original gouaches. To learn more about the artwork that inspired this Met Store product, read our blog here.
