USA: Edmund Dulac's illustration of The Nightingale

Today I got two postcards: one from the USA and my first card from Argentina.

The card from the USA shows Edmund Dulac's illustration of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Nightingale. The fairy tale was first published in 1843 and the illustration is from 1911. Edmund Dulac was born in 1882 in Toulouse and naturalised later to Great Britain. He was an illustrator for children's books and magazines and also designed stamps and banknotes for Great Britain, France and Poland. He died in 1953.
