BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE SHADOWS AND LIGHT

A beautiful young woman poses in the shadows and light in this vintage real photo postcard portrait. This photograph is truly artistic. The image plays on the contrast between black and white. The woman is nicely dressed and smiles coyly for the camera. Her feet rest on a pillow that appears to be floating in mid air. Her chair also seems to suspended above the ground. This postcard was published by EEC and is part of a series (no. 5765/66). The message on the reverse of the postcard indicates that it dates back to 1915. The previous owner of this postcard pointed out that the use of contrast in this postcard was reminiscent of the great illustrator, Coles Phillips (1880-1927). A little research quickly confirmed the previous owner’s observation (see below). Clarence Coles Phillips was and American artist and illustrator. According to Wikipedia, “He is known for his stylish images of women and a signature use of negative space in the paintings he created for advertisements and the covers of popular magazines”.
