Victorian Art Appreciation: Fond Memories by Raimundo de Madrazo

Fond Memories 
by Raimundo de Madrazo (1841 - 1920)

Portrait of a young lady smiling with delight as she recalls the happy memories that have been captured in her photo album. I found the reproduction by Google Art Project here but you can also download my colour-enhanced version (8.5" x 11" @ 300 ppi JPEG) without a watermark here. I thought this would be wonderful as a cover for a journal or a scrapbook but you could also use it in a greeting card project.

Vintage Real Photo Postcard (RPPC): 1904 Antonia with Pink Striped Roses in her Hat

A hand-tinted French real photo postcard (RPPC) from 1904. It shows a young woman in Edwardian costume smiling confidently into the camera with her hands on her hips. On her hat are flamboyant pink striped roses. I think she has plenty of joie de vivre and is simply charming! You can download the high-res 3.5" x 5.5" @ 300 ppi JPEG without any watermark here.
