Berger des Pyrenees

Reproduction of an aquarelle on a postcard by Charles Homualk. "Berger des Pyrenees";  made in France, Editions Gaby. 
I'm unsure of the date of this card but would assume it would be in the 40s to 60s era.  It is a beautiful card which captures many components of the life of a shepherd in the Pyrenees - the ruggedness, the villages below, the majestic mountains, sheep and faithful dog.  This card is larger than the earlier cards and has an uneven edging.
