This RPPC has been crudely hand-painted--the glossy color standing out now against the badly faded sepia. Whether a woman with gigantic feet and an unheimlich look about her, or a man in drag with a passing resemblance to Oscar Wilde--your call.
Hardly in doubt, though: that Bridget Riley did the moiré pattern on the skirt.

Say a little prayer for Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, who died this week. He outlived Roland Barthes, who found his singing too 'bourgeois', by many, many years. When I first picked up this card of two young Teutonesses, I thought the one of them was about to stab the other one in the chest. Luckily, the tree intervened.
