Although my specialty is French postcards, if the card is by an artist I like, I'll get it from any country possible. So I'm quite pleased to have tracked down this rare Emile Bottaro design on a Polish printed postcard. Verso, under the top left stain, you'll see the artist's name and the first word, Zima, is Polish for winter. Bottaro's blonde in her blue fur-trimmed coat and matching muff is ready to make the most of winter with some skiing fun. Emile Bottaro was an Italian artist. Not much is known about his personal life, but his body of art work includes everything from the exotic to the traditional, including landscapes. The heart of this image is in fine condition, but the card does show its age with stains verso and a creased top right corner. The blemishes could easily be out of sight if matted and framed. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Since the card is not dated, I'm guessing based on its size that it is from the early 1920s or possibly before WWI. (Continental size postcards were not popular in Europe until the late 1920s.)
