The big contortionist
I often post photos of the postcards I receive via Postcrossing, but rarely the ones I receive. Partly that's because I rarely scan them - either the images have already been uploaded when I receive them, or it's not worth the bother.
But this one was worth the bother!
This one is NL-582690 from the Netherlands; oddly enough, it reached my mailbox when I was actually in the Netherlands! It came from a museum I walked by (but didn't go in), also: the Stedelijk Museum.
Here's the info from the back of the postcard:
Pyke Koch, 1901
de grote contorsioniste
the big contortionist
1957 - 168x120cm
collection stedelijk museum amsterdam
Quite the painting!
