Miracles of Christ Postcards by Domenico Mastroianni, 1911

$96.00

This rare set of antique religious postcards by the famous Italian sculptor Domenico Mastroianni consists of 8 unused cards that depict various scenes from Our Lord’s life including 6 of His miracles. The clay sculptures shown in each scene are amazingly realistic vignettes, and they capture the exquisite detail for which the artist was renowned.

 

These postcards were part of Mastroianni’s “Life of Christ” series and are now very rare. Each sculpture is signed by the artist, and each postcard is marked by the printing house A. Noyer of Paris.

 

Domenico Mastroianni (1876-1962) was a self-taught Italian artist who developed an amazing capacity to quickly model scenes in clay, photograph them, and then destroy each one before beginning another. He produced thousands of images, mostly reproduced as postcards or decorative prints. His subjects were deeply researched and generally religious, literary, or historical in nature. He called his technique sculptochromie, photo-sculptures, or sculptogravures.
