Today I have a collection of art cards to share with you.


First is this Postcrossing card from Germany. It shows some artwork from Sandro Botticelli, the early Renaissance painter.


Second is another Postcrossing card from Germany, showing a painting by the 19th century French artist, Pierre Renoir. Renoir is one of my favorite artists. The back of the card says that the title of the work is “Schlafende” or “Sleeping” and that it was painted in 1880.


Next is a card sent from a Dutch Postcrosser. The card shows a painting called “Conversations” by Nguyen Thanh Binh. This card was printed by IKEA, which has surprisingly nice postcards that don’t even require assembly.


And finally, Grant Wood’s classic painting “American Gothic,” painted in 1930. This card was sent by Jennifer in Nebraska, who had visited the American Gothic House in Iowa.

Just one new stamp, showing Schloss Stolzenfels am Rhein in Germany:
