Dreams of Love by Dutch Artist 1916 Postcard Russian IssueDreams of Love by Dutch Artist 1916 Postcard Russian Issue

Willem Johannes Martens (Dutch, 1839–1895) got cheated a bit. On this Russian issue of Marten's "Dream of Love" painting, only the artist's last name is given! However, history has well documented his work and his name pops up among the great auction sites, Christies, Sotheby's and Bonham's. (Most recently in 2014, one of Marten's paintings was up for auction with an estimated price of $3-5K. It sold for over twice that amount at $11,250.)
Verso this postcard is dated April 4, 1916. Album impressions at the corner. Slightest hints of wear on the corner edges. Overall for its age, in fine antique condition. 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
