AFTER MAX NONNENBRUCH
Bien Otre--Wellness--circa 1900 Oil on canvas.
This is a post card my Mother and Aunt (RIP) had in their collection. It was brought over from the Ukraine by my Grandmother. It always fascinated me when I was a child.....the long hair on this lady.
It's very old because on the back of it it said printed in St. Petersburg, Russia. Which the name of the city St. Petersburg was changed to Leningrad in 1924. I'm sure that someone in my Grandmother's family had traveled to St. Petersburg at the turn of the century and picked this up....they were an affluent family before the Revolution.
I was excited to learn of the Artist who painted this picture in my later years.......it's such a different pose for a portrait. I love the vibrant red that is peeking out of her top. Sort of looks like some oriental type of clothing.
