Marcel Vertes (1895-1961) was a Hungarian artist, illustrator & costume designer, probably best known for his stylish & lively murals adorning the walls of NYC’s Carlyle Hotel. He also won two well-deserved Oscars, with Elsa Schiaparalli, for his work on 1952´s Moulin Rouge (for Art Direction and Costume Design). Le Pays a Mon Gout reflects his whimsical style, but with decidedly erotic themes.
