BEACHWOOD, Ohio - eTradeWire -- An extensive offering of sculptures and works on paper by renowned artists Erté (Russian/French, 1892-1990) and Louis Icart (French, 1888-1950), all from a private local collection, plus a smattering of additional lovely Art Deco pieces by other artists, 92 lots in all, will come up for bid in Neue Auctions' next online sale planned for Saturday, October 24th.

Internet bidding will be provided by Liveauctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Bidsquare.com. Phone and absentee bids will be accepted. For more information, visit www.neueauctions.com.

The auction, with an 11 am Eastern start time, is titled (appropriately enough) Icarts & Ertés. Most of the expected top lots are bronze sculptures by Erté, whose actual name is Romain de Tirtoff (Erté is from the French pronunciation of his initials). He was an artist and designer in many fields, including fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume design and even movie set design.
