A C Bertrand

2002? Au pays de la Fontaine. Seventeen card series of oil paintings on cloth by A.C. Bertrand disseminated on postcards.  Chateau Thierry: Imprimerie Harvich.  €3 apiece at St. Ouen, August, '113.  Extras of #4, 10, and 11 for €3 apiece from Témoignage d'Images, Paris, at the Paris Post Card Exhibition, Jan., '05.

The color schemes are strong here. Each of the paintings seems to suppose knowledge of the fable; it would be hard to deduce the fable from the rather static picture.  Each card (except for CJ) gives a title above its painted picture and a key line below it.
