Very unusual Painting by illustrator/artist Leonard Linsdell Tuck-Postcards:
This is a fabulous painting on board is by well known illustrator and artist Leonard Linsdell Born Balshum Cambridgeshire UK
May 24,1892 -died Audley End Estate, Essex UK June 8, 1954. Linsdell did a popular series of postcards for Raphael Tuck and sons. Many of Lindsdell's original paintings were likely destroyed at Tuck's during the bombing on the night of December 29, 1940.London was heavily bombed and Raphael House was destroyed. Records of seventy-four years and 40,000 or more original pictures and photographs by the best artists were destroyed.
This painting is unique and beautiful. The frame may or may not be original, see the images they are part of the description. The word "Masquerade" is written upside down in pencil at the top of frame. I do not know who wrote it. I obtained this lovely art deco girl is obviously having a wonderful time. Her smile is infectious. Whether you are a Tuck postcard fan or a collector of fine art, you need this in you're collection!
I obtained this in a small sale in New York state. It was advertised as a "Linspell" a common mistake because of the way Linsdell wrote his signature. I have no letter of authenticity or provenance but it's highly unlikely that this is a copy. Please ask questions.
