This extraordinary and important oil painting by Marcel Vertes, in preparation for his murals at the renowned Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan, shows him at the height of his powers, in an era when he own Oscar awards for "Moulin Rouge" and brought a level of sexiness and sophistication to the packaging and image of Schocking, a new perfume by Elsa Schiaparelli in the 1940s. Vertes painted murals for the apartment of Elsie de Wolfe, decorated a yacht owned by Aristotle Onassis, and painted the portraits of many rich and famous people. Representing a lost, lighthearted era, this painting is a treasure. This painting retains exhibition labels from the Hammer Galleries and the Salmagundi Club.
