Female Nude on Bicycle Postcard
J.H. Moesman Artist
This great postcard features a reproduction of a painting by artist J.H. Moesman. The image is of a nude woman riding a bicycle down a street in Holland.
"J.H. Moesman (1909-1988) is sometimes called the 'only real Dutch surrealist'. For over forty years he worked for the Netherlands Railways in Utrecht, producing, as a side-line about the same number of paintings. His best paintings were made during the thirties, when, on two occasions, his work was removed from exhibitions in Amsterdam, for 'offending morals'. After the war, it was banned once more, turning him into an almost legendary celebrity during his lifetime."
Titled Het Gerucht (The Rumour) the work was created in 1941.
