Printed by Lapina & Co. (1914-1927) of Paris, the colors in this Salon de Paris reproduction of Gaston Bussière's "Salome" is as vibrant today as it was back in 1914 when he exhibited it. Rich golden orange-reds contrast with her cool creamy bisque skin and blue skirt. A sensual rendition of Salome without the morbidity. Bussière (1862 – 1928 or 1929) was a French Symbolist painter and much demand in his day as an illustrator of famous author's books. He painted another interpretation of Salome, also called the Golden Butterfly, in 1923. I'm working my French connections to get more of his art postcards. The white borders on this card show foxing, but the art itself is in overall fine condition. The cardstock has a light linen texture, mostly visible in the dark background at top. Superb quality, a testimony to Lapina's reputation. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
