Etienne Dinet's original oil painting "Slave of Love" hangs at the Musee D'Orsay, but this card was produced on behalf of the Musee de Luxembourg, where it first hung. The French artist, one of the founders of the Society of French Orientalist Painters, painted this romantic couple based on an Arab legend, in 1900. This postcard reproduction was mailed in 1913! It is a high quality reproduction, printed on linen-textured paper. The white border shows soiling but no creases. Overall, for its age, this card shows minimal wear. About 3.5 by 5.5 inches.

Dinet's life is most interesting. If you are not familiar with him, I highly suggest a Google search. He was a man of strong convictions and very passionate. He lived much of his life in Algeria and converted to Islam in 1913. During WWI, he and his sister turned their family mansion into a hospital.

The postcard of wild-growing wisteria is a freebie I'm including. I just couldn't resist pairing the two items together.
