Leon Charles Huber, known as Leo, was born in Montmarte in 1858. He was a painter and a philanthropist, often helping and teaching other young artists. Beginning in 1887, he was a regular exhibitor at the Paris Salon and his specialty was cats! In 1908 a caricature was published of Huber as half cat, painting a cat portrait with his own long cat tail. Numerous works by the artist have been sold at auction, including 'Kittens at play' which sold through Christie's in 2008 for $8,125.
The white cat postcard is poignant and special. Very French with the snail! And this card was mailed the year Monsieur Huber died: 1928. This card was mailed to Marie in Fontainebleau, wishing her happiness on her Saint's namesake day. It's signed by 5 people, maybe 6 if the bottom squiggle is a signature:) The intro is darling: "Happy feast my old doll." .... "your cousins ask me to send their wishes and strong embraces."
Each card is about 5.5 by 3.5 inches. White cat card: Signs of age on the edges and in the upper left hand corner there are a couple of light creases. Cat with ball card: Signs of age on the edges/corner tips.
