Item description: 

Metlicovitz joined Ricordi's lithographic workshop in 1891, working under the instruction of Adolf Hohenstein. Metlicovitz became one of Ricordi's most prolific artists and its art director after Hohenstein left the firm. Shown here is one of the twelve postcards that made up the set issued for the production of Tosca. The designs were originally created in watercolor.
