Jordaens Satyr and Peasant Brussels 1910

1910?   Black-and-white photographic postcard of (Jacob) Jordaens’ “The Satyr and the Peasant.”  Brussels Museum.  Union Postale Universelle.  $6 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne-Ricouart, France, Sept., ’20.

Compare this card with a similar card below, perhaps a few years later.  Does it help the image here to have it set in the upper left with a blank column at the right and a ribbon for print below?  Black-and-white representations of paintings seem to us in retrospect, I believe, to be so unfair to what a painting is!  We can be grateful that technology came up with colored representations!
