Each year Art Herstory offers a new holiday card design, which features (of course!) a work by a woman artist. This year, for the first time, the Art Herstory holiday card is not by a female Old Master, nor does it reproduce a Nativity.
We present the first Art Herstory botanical holiday card:
The new card features E. F. Seedling Amaryllis 1819, a watercolor by nineteenth-century British artist Priscilla Susan Bury (1799–1872). The original artwork is held by the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
Art Herstory holiday cards are larger than Art Herstory note cards. They are A7 format (5×7″). They are available for sale in a 10-pack with holiday-red envelopes, or as individual cards (with matching envelope) in an eco-friendly clear sleeve. The inside greeting reads “Season’s Greetings.”
To order Art Herstory holiday cards online, visit the online Art Herstory Shop.
Limited quantities of Art Herstory Christmas cards from previous years are still available:
- The Nativity of Christ, by Orsola Maddalena Caccia (Italian, 1596–1676)
- Adoration of the Magi, by Artemisia Gentileschi (Italian, 1593–c.1654)
The inside greeting for both the Caccia and Gentileschi cards is: “Buon Natale / Merry Christmas.”
