This is one of four antique postcards I have in the dancing girls series by French painter Ernest Gayac (1870-1942). There were several series created by the artist. Some focus more on ballerinas with tutus; some floating through the air, dance hall girls, etc. This one is labeled as part of the third series, whichever one that is! Here's an interesting trivial note: that "scratch" on the front across the blue-green grass is inherent to the printing and not a true surface scratch. It's on any copy of this nymph in blue that you'll get!
In the last photo you'll catch a glimpse of all four available. About 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Unused. Published by P.J. Gallais & Cie of Paris. According to Neudin's "Les Meilleures Cartes Postales d'Illustrateurs," the French "Bible" for postcard collectors, this series by Gayac was produced around 1910. Slightest hints of age on the corner tips, but overall, near mint unused condition. No surface wear! To see all cards I have by this artist, use GAYAC in the word search box.
