Italian artist Giovanni Guerzoni's signature isn't easy to read and so it's no wonder he is often confused with other "G" artists: Guerinoni, F.D. Guerzoni, Guerrini. But once you see his style, I think you'll recognize THE Giovanni Guerzoni (1876-1948). This blonde beauty is one of my favorites with the exotic hair decoration dripping in pearls. This card is indeed artist signed but verso it's all blank, which to be honest, I can't explain! However, I feel confident in saying this card is antique, circa 1917, based on the others in the series that you see in the last photo, which will be listed separately. Except for hints of wear on the corner tips, this card is in near mint condition and a century later, the colors are still superb.

Thanks to Metropolitan Postcard Club of New York for this tidbit of bio: "Guerzoni moved to Argentina in 1889 but returned to Italy to begin studies at the Bologna Academy in 1894. He would work from his Milan studio between 1897 and 1920 from where he created paintings and illustrations. Many of his watercolor and gouache depictions of landscape, women and romantic themes were placed on postcards."
