Andre Edouard Marty or A.E. Marty (April 16, 1882-August 1974) was a Parisian artist who worked mainly in the classic Art Deco style.
A.E. Marty studied at the ?cole des Beaux-Arts and Atelier Fernand Cormon in Montmartre, Paris. He was appointed on the jury for the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts D?coratifs et Industriels Modernes, from which the Art Deco movement took its name.
Marty was one of only four artists to contribute to every year of La Gazette du bon ton a leading pochoir fashion magazine in Paris and in Europe (1912 to 1925).
Marty also had illustrations published in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, House & Garden, Le Sourire, F?mina, Modes et Mani?res d?Aujord?hui and Comoedia Illustre, among others.
He also illustrated numerous books and designed advertisements and theatre posters (including a number of famous ones for the Ballets Russes and the Th??tre National de l'Op?ra in 1910).
In the 1930s Marty worked as a costume and set designer for the theatre, cinema and ballet. Later he also produced designs for enamel vases, plates and jewellery.
