To see the im­age of a woman and to med­i­tate on its essence—nat­u­rally we can not only do this look­ing at a can­vas paint­ing or pho­to­graph but also leaf­ing through post­cards. The Carte Postale. Woman at the Turn of an Era show of­fers a glimpse through post­cards from the turn of the 20th century from the pri­vate col­lec­tion of Ok­sana Bo­boshko-Van­der­ho­even. “The slen­der fe­male fig­ures of that time with their dainty s-shaped sil­hou­ettes and co­quet­tish curls were the source of in­spi­ra­tion for painters and the main sub­ject of post­cards of that era,” says the show's cu­ra­tor.
