This is one of three postcards I have from Raphael Tuck's "Golden Dawn" series by mystery French artist Jean Lasalle. This card is in the famous "Oilette De Luxe" style, which means it has been printed every so slightly embossed to create the brush stroke effects of a real oil painting. This card is unused and in almost mint condition except for the signs of wear at the bottom! I spent way too much time trying to find out more about this French artist. His style immediately calls to mind Maxfield Parrish's "Daybreak." In fact, one web site I found makes the claim that Lasalle preceeded Parrish's famous work by 20 years. While these postcards may indeed have been printed in the 1920s/30s, Lasalle's original paintings may have been from the early 1900s. I'm not sure. I'm still investigating and waiting on correspondance. Stay tuned. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
In the last photo, you see all three available. Type 'Lasalle' in the word search box on my home page.
