Circa 1915-1947. The following original draft drawings and paintings by Marco Montedoro are being offered as a collection. They include original graphite, pen and ink, and watercolor paintings on paper and artist's board spanning the career of Marco Montedoro as a set and costume designer. The archive is a comprehensive representation of his professional career in Europe and the United States. Before he died, Montedoro gave his collection to his close friend Hella Arensen (ne Aronson), a German Jewish newspaper artist who emigrated from pre-war Nazi Germany to New York. Since Montedoro's death, the collection has remained in the Aronson family. Most images are signed by Montedoro, with an average size of 11" x 14", and are in varying condition. A full photographic gallery of this collection is available upon request. Montedoro's family of musicians considered him a child prodigy and sent him in his teens to Paris to study drawing and painting. He worked as an artist in Paris until 1913, when he became the artistic director of the Berlin Metropole. During WWI, he designed posters for Italian theaters and cinemas. Following the war, Montedoro returned to Paris to design costumes for the Palace, Ambassadeurs, Moulin Rouge, and Folies Bergère, including a 1927 show featuring Josephine Baker. During this period he also designed productions in Milan, Berlin, London, St. Petersburg, and Poland. In 1930, Montedoro relocated to New York City and designed for the Schuberts, including the 1941-1942 Broadway production of La Vie Parisienne. From 1932-1947, Montedoro worked alongside Vincinte Minelli designing sets and costumes for Radio City Music Hall, where Montedoro became head designer. Montedoro's genius is featured om Angelo Luerti's 2006 book 'Non Solo Erté - Not Only Erté, Costume Design for the Paris Music Hall 1918-1940.
