English Postcard 'Hope' by Watts.

One of the most enigmatic and arresting paintings of the 19th Century is 'Hope' by George Frederick Watts (1817-1904).

Featuring a forlorn blind woman hugging a broken lyre with only one remaining string. Representing 'where there is life there is hope'. It grabbed the imagination of the Victorian public and became enormously popular. Especially after it was turned into an engraving.

This depiction by Eyre and Spottiswoode Ltd, is number 6337 in the Woodbury series.

The original painting is in the Tate Gallery, London.

Postally unused it is in good clean condition with minor edge and corner bumps.
