Marcel Vertès was a Hungarian born painter, printer and illustrator, whose imagery whilst in Paris during the 1920s, was one of the most defining and exemplary of that exciting period. He made many pictures of women, often depicted stylishly of their time, along with scenes of the circus, cabaret, and the street life of Paris.

With the advent of the second world war he moved to the USA and settled in New York where he consolidated his considerable reputation and extended his work into the area of the cinema, being a consultant to the producers and set designers for the 1952 award winning movie ‘Moulin Rouge’.

Vertès returned to Paris for the last years of his life. He died in 1961.
