Maxicard: Titian's The Flaying of Marsyas
Today at a local flea market I bought this nice maxicard of Titian's famous picture The Flaying of Marsyas (1575-6), which hangs in the Archbishop's Palace several hundred meters from where I live. The stamp shows the detail of King Midas' head, was engraved by the master of Czech engravers J. Herčík and issued in 1978 in ex-Czechoslovakia.
The card bears the postmark of the stamp exhibition Praga 1978 (12-9-1978).
