Artists include Raphael, Leonardo DaVinci, Michelangelo, Bellino, Titan, Caravaggio, Murillo, Rubens, Van Dyke, etc. plus a selection of animals, birds. Almost all real photo cards and most have the artist name or title of the work of art written on the front, source information is one the back of many. Germany and Italian language is common throughout. We do note some card mounts are hand cut. Condition is exceptional with almost the entire collection presenting near-mint or better. The small number of paper thin color cards have mount impressions. A fascinating collection that seems to have remained intact for a century or more.
