La Bonne Mere by Jean-Honoré Fragonard Lithograph Postcard from Polish Count's CollectionLa Bonne Mere by Jean-Honoré Fragonard Lithograph Postcard from Polish Count's CollectionLa Bonne Mere by Jean-Honoré Fragonard Lithograph Postcard from Polish Count's Collection

This postcard, franked 1908, is of a painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard entitled "La Bonne Mère" (The Good Mother). Fragonard, (April 1732 in Grasse – August 1806 in Paris) is rightly considered among the most important French painters of the second half of the eighteenth century. This postcard is a high quality color lithograph print and we would expect nothing less from the collection of Count Tyszkiewicz.* As the small text at bottom says, this is a photogravure by J. Chauvet printed by Paul Moglia of Paris.
On the back of this card is the stamped address of Count Benedict Tyszkiewicz (1852-1935). He was of Polish-Lithuanian nobility and he was a famous photographer. In 2009, an exhibit at Minsk featured 86 of his photos of Belarus from the turn of the century. He lived in Paris and was a member of the Paris Photo Club. He was also an art collector. He would often buy lithograph postcards, put his return address stamp on them, and have them delivered to the artist to be autographed!*
This card shows wear on the corner tips but overall is in fine antique condition. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
