Portrait postcard with autograph aphorism signed on verso.
An aphorism in Russian, penned in the last year of Tolstoy's life: "Love everyone, and you shall prosper with all those with whom you live and will live in the future / Leo Tolstoy / 24 Feb. 1910" (transl.).
The card shows a reproduction von Ilya Repin's famous portrait of Tolstoy from 1901. Written side a little stained and with insignificant traces of mounting; some oxydation to image.
