PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY TEENAGE GIRL IN BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

This vintage real postcard features an attractive young woman. She appears to be in her teenage years. Her photograph was taken by Florencio Bixio and he operated a studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Bixio specialized in studio portraits, wedding portraits, and photos of entertainers. He also was a correspondent for the magazine “Caras and Caretas”, as well as a producer of photo postcards. Between 1900 and 1930 he opened photography studios in partnership with two other photographers. These studios were called “Bixio and Merlino” and Bixio and Castiglioni”. He was of Italian descent and emigrated to Argentina in 1896. He died in Buenos Aires in 1933. The message on this postcard indicates that it was written in 1922. SOLD
