Landscapes & Flowers

These postcards show rustic country sides, leafy orchards and bouquet after bouquet of various types of flowers. The images tend to evoke the romance of nature and the beauty of an isolated spot. Typically, these cards were sent to Caruso by female friends. The Landscape and Flower postcards represent an interesting interaction between the rustic appeal of nature and the “new” technology of the postcard medium. Some of the postcards of flowers also display a nod towards modernity, with their Art Nouveau style.
