Art Nouveau Post-Cards

This morning I popped into Gertrude and Alice, a second hand bookshop, and got a cute book called 'Art Nouveau Post-Cards' that was published in 1977, (by Images Graphiques, New York). These scanned images prompted me to buy the book. They're by Raphael Kirchner (1876 - 1917), a prolific designer and artist of the period. It's suspected that much of the work thought to be done by him was actually done (or at least assisted) by his wife, who was also his model. You can find out more about him, and see some of his paintings here. xxxx
