Art Nouveau era German Issue Artist Postcard 'The Mermaid'.
By Prussian Symbolist Artist Playwright and Writer Professor Ludwig Fahrenkrog (1867-1952) is this beautiful early German issue Postcard entitled simply 'The Mermaid' ((Die Meerfrau).
The subject is a young naked woman, draped in her amazing long hair, seemingly enticing a similarly un-clad man to join her in the ocean. Clearly based on the German myth of Lorelei, she is pictured against a huge rock and a watery moon. A very ethereal picture.
Issued by M B K, Berlin, it is numbered 2414 and clean verso.
Postally un-used it has some edge and corner bumps and is in good Antique condition.
