A Rare Archive of original botanical watercolors by Elisabeth Boehm (Elisaveta Merkuryevna Bem or Boehm or Böhm --Russian: ; 1843&1914) together with Postcards illustrated with printed examples of her work, together with a written explanation of the Archive's Provenance. All items are in Very Good or better condition. The Postcards show some wear and some have writing on the verso. The ORIGINAL DRAWINGS, of which there are 36 [with two being on the same piece of paper, one on the recto and one on the verso) are, to our eye, QUITE BEAUTIFUL. A RARE OFFERING.Per Wikipedia:Elisabeth painted many watercolors, illustrated children books of the Folk Library ( ) series there she was introduced by Leo Tolstoy. She also experimented with glass and ceramics. For her Silhouettes, Etchings and works of glass she received medals of the World Fairs in Chicago of 1893, Paris of 1900, Munich of 1902 and Milan of 1906 (gold medal).Still she is mostly known as one of the most prominent Russian authors of postcards. She created more than 350 postcards.[7] Most of her postcards were printed by the St. Eugenia Welfare Society ( ). She has created a recognisable style of the postcards that depicts children faces and silhouettes. According to the study of Tretyakov and Gutterman she was the most reprinted author of postcards in the Russian empire.
