I love his depiction of the Cornucopia being so heavily-laden with gold coin that it requires wheels to move it. In fact, the cast bronze sculpture is finished in white and gold leaf, as well as silver facet bead chain. (I can only hope the lady is wheeling home her booty so she can count it all!)
His Russian birth name may have been Romain de Tirtoff, but Erté’s middle name was undoubtedly Luxury! Clearly he understood the bounty of cornucopias.
