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, no creases, but signs of wear at the bottom. Verso, right top corner has been torn away, possibly glued into an album? Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. I've included a direct scan as well as a photo. There is such a contrast in the rich colors, it's difficult to capture the tones but between photo and scan, you can see how lovely it is. I want to say this mimics the style of Maxfield Parrish but as I explained in the other listing, it is possible that it was the other way around: Parrish may have been imitating Lasalle. I'll keep you updated on my sleuthing!
In the last photo, you see all three available. Type 'Lasalle' in the word search box on my home page. BUY ALL THREE and get an additional $10 off! Details on my Buy More, Save More offer on my home page.
