Original artwork by the legendary Art Nouveau illustrator Raphael Kirchner commissioned for a turn-of-the-century postcard. Perhaps best known as a postcard illustrator, this is a stunning example with a wonderfully detailed, stylized art nouveau rendering of a pan flute playing maiden. Matted in a stunning period frame.

Kirchner was revered for his sensual and sexually-provocative "Kirchner Girls" which appeared monthly in La Vie Parisienne, a notorious French publication.
