15 Anatomy of a Heart, Drama of Life and Cherry

Anatomy of a Heart, Drama of Life and Cherry

Posted on July 8, 2010 by team

Old postcards are so cool to collect! Luxury retro-divas, wonderful hats, shameless attires … Most of the items can’t be imagined on modern postcards, some of them have even become a taboo. This smoking girl, for example: it used to be cute, now it is outrageous.

“Morphine Addicts”, Paris

Simone, “Anatomy of a heart”. Can you imagine this one to receive from your friend? A thoughtful anatomist is scrutinizing a heart of a young lady in his pince-nez.

By the way, there’s a love letter on the back… It has such words somewhere in the middle: “…the letters are of mixed type  – protreptic and lyric. Is this my fault that you are so silly? I miss you so damn much, and weird enough – I want badly to see you. It is annoying me, it makes me mad.” And more: “I like to be free, when my heart is free etc., and a little bear thrusted its claws in my heart, i don’t want that. Impudent you! Don’t you see? I hate you for this .. and love you”.

And this one, that does not seem less weird can be a reply of a ” little bear”. “Madness”

And so they have two “layers of correspondence” – in words and in pictures. Other “Anatomists”

“Before an operation”.

Less sophisticated ones: “Engaged”


“Waiting for your caress”

“Got spliced against their will”

    Weird that all the people on the dissection tables are all attractive women.

    Subliminal message or something??

  5. Fyodor says:

    Reminds of the film “Of Freaks and Men”

    Well, I guess that’s the utility of comments, we can enrich the content of the entry in a way the original author couldn’t or wouldn’t do.

    Nice appreciation of the infidelity card, by the way..


  7. Ivana Benderova says:

    Well yes, and yes. It is also to be noted that these postal cards were very racy in these times, the post-Victorian era. It is true what waffen says, that “weird,” is only weird because it is different or ahead of its time, or “cutting edge.” It is necessary to put this into the context of its historical era in order to understand anything about it in today’s terms.

    Who painted second postcard picture? Very nice picture. Something is written in lower right corner of the postcard, something like Mationin?

    I like the modern look of the ho.moseksuel guys on ‘Engaged’ and ‘Divorced’. I thought g.ays were not tolerated in those days, yet here I see them on postcards!!

      Numerous studies have proven that those who are obsessed with homosexuals typically are hiding their own homosexual desires.
