Another bookish card today. I've received my first postcard from Kazakhstan. The painting is by F.A. Malyavin (1869-1940) and is a portrait of the artist's sister. It is found in The Tretyakov State Gallery in Moscow and was paintd in 1895. Perhaps it's the production of the postcard but the colors are quite muted. Looking at his other work, he tended to paint very bright and colorful paintings.
As the postcard is very thin, the postcrosser who sent it to me mailed it in an envelope.
I'm afraid I couldn't find anything about the stamps, but the illustration is almost mythological with winged horses.
