The original item from FrenchKissed is now SOLD.
This is a hard-to-find art reproduction postcard featuring the talent of Tade Styka (1889 – 1954). Born in Poland, Tade, his brother Adam and his father Jan were all painters. A prodigy, he was receiving prizes for his art work from Paris galleries when he was 11! Tade is known for portraits of famous 20th century women, from actresses to royalty. But this is my favorite. (Interestingly, the Styka Family Art site does not even have a copy of this art work included in Tade's works.) Entitled "Thought," this card is artist signed, albeit very hard to see at the bottom right corner. Printed by Lapina of Paris. Excuse me if I sound like a broken record, but the scan doesn't do the postcard justice. It is indeed worn at the corners and there are some errants specks here and there, but no creases and the richness of the colors are incredible. Hold the card under a lamp and the blonde hair turns downright golden. Verso, this card is hand-dated 1925. I think this is Hungarian writing. Antique postcard size of 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
Please note that insurance is required due to the rarity of this card.
