In Neudin's "Best Postcards of Illustrators," it says this about Evangeline (Eva) Mary Daniell: "The best British artist of 'brillant' Art Nouveau. It is all the more reason her death was so tragic." (She was only 22; born in Great Britain in 1880 and died in 1902.) I believe in this case 'brillant' means bright and glossy, referring to all the gold overprint in her designs. Brilliant is apropos, too. Neudin goes on to verify that this unsigned piece printed by Raphael Tuck and Sons is indeed the work of Eva Daniell. Very much in the footsteps of the father of Art Nouveau, Alphonse Mucha, Daniell's design on this postcard features a woman in a flowing Neo-classical gown framed inside gold lines, surrounded by white birds and set against a circle of gold adorned with floral designs. From this piece flows even more fluid lines and golden leaves. Franked 1904, Lucie sent this card to her dear friend Marthe. "We have had a terrible time since your leaving. I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you Sunday, however, if the rain doesn't fall." Size: about 5.5 by 3.5 inches. For a used card, sent through the postal system, with a light cream background, that is 100 years old, it is in incredible condition. Price includes shipping and insurance within the US.
