Carneval de Paris, 1895

Postcard Perfect #1

I'm sure the lady is pretty, but the shimmer of the golden champaigne holder at the table draws my attention more in this Edelfelt portrait. It's really stunning. I also like the crimson red shade of the wall and the subject's ginger hair. This is my second Albert Edelfelt postcard. It's called "Carnevel de Paris" and was done in 1895.

Albert Edelfelt is a Finnish painter with absolutely stunning creations. He lived late 19th century and has lots of portrait paintings of women. I really would love to receive more postcards of his works. :)
