This is an art reproduction postcard produced by Neurdein Brothers on behalf of the Salon des Paris. It features an oil painting by Louise Abbéma (1853-1927), a French artist who became famous at the age of 23 for a portrait she did of Sarah Bernhardt (who may have been her lover.) This work, entitled "Flore," is a tribute to the Roman goddess of flowers. Abbéma was a woman ahead of her times, talented and smart. She wore many hats: painter, printmaker, muralist, sculptor and writer. No small feat for a woman during a time when they had basically no legal rights. This postcard is unused and in overall near mint condition with virtually no surface wear. The Neurdein company was bought out in 1919, so if this postcard is not actually from a 1913 printing, it would date from no later than 1919. About 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
