This is one of six Hans Zatzka postcards I'm listing, all from the collection of Polish Count Benedict Tyszkiewicz (1852-1935). The Count was of Polish-Lithuanian nobility and a famous photographer in his own right. He lived in Paris and was a member of the Paris Photo Club and the French Photographical Society. He was also a well-known art collector as well as a patron of the arts. He would often buy chromolithograph postcards, put his return address stamp on them, and have them delivered to the artist to be autographed! I initially thought the handwritten/dated notation on these cards could be just such an autographed card. However, the more I've examined the funky marks and the date notations, I think these are the Count's handwritten notes. Nevertheless, the card stands on its own merit. Zatzka doing what he did best: fantasy scenes with Cupids that capture the heart. Zatzka was born in Vienna in 1859. He painted under several pseudonyms including P. Rosnard and Joseph Bernard (often confused with the French sculpture of the same name). Verso we have the German and French names for this painting: "A Good Guy" and "The Little Benefactor."
Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Hint of wear at the corner tips. Overall, in fine antique condition.
To see all of the Count's cards I have available, copy and paste Tyszkiewicz (or Count or Polish) into the search bar.
