Not much is known about Spanish artist Vincente Cristellys (1898-1970) but his style is definitely recognizable. This miniature art print is one in the "Parisienne" series produced by Éditions d'Art by Yvon. Not technically a postcard but similar in cardstock as one, this print is just over 4 inches wide and about 5.75 inches tall. Unused and in fine vintage condition; circa 1953-1955. The colors are so bold and richly saturated. A typical Parisian, this classic beauty has held up well for her age!
I have one more currently available in this series: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8505/1950s-French-Fashion-Beauty-Blue-x22Parisiennex22
One of the main reasons it is difficult to find Cristellys' art is because his signature is difficult to read. And with a series titled "Parisienne," that doesn't narrow down a search very much:) The last time I had this beauty to offer was December 2017. So if you like her, nab her now:)
SIDE note: There is speculation that the "Smile of Paris/Sourire de Paris" series also published by Éditions d'Art by Yvon are designs of Cristellys. I currently have five of those art prints available. Use the words "Paris Mode" in the search box to see them all. Whoever the artist was, it's the same definitive 1950s chic style!
