Medito la vendetta….
The Fondazione Alinari per la fotografia (Archivio Alinari) hosts four similar postcards, the captions are as follows:

- Medito la vendetta (AVQ-A-000047-0122)
- Abbandonata al mondo seduttore (AVQ-A-000047-0119)
- l’orgoglio del mio onore vincerà (AVQ-A-000047-0118)
La Cigale or Odalesque?
This has not been an involuntary mistake, the images had been credited as there were in their respective sources. But there is further to be noticed, as you can see, the image below look more like one of Farnsworth in style and motive.
(***) credits on source is as follows :
Charles I. Berg : Odalesque, 1899
series Title : American Pictorial Photography, Series I
Medium : photogravure in red mounted on green wove paper
Plate 16 : La Cigale …………….. by Emma J. Farnsworth
Plate 17 : Odalesque ………….. by Charles I. Berg
Bearing in mind the photographers’ styles and motives it is highly probable that the plates had been miscredited at the National Gallery of Art. We reckon the last but one image in this post is plate number 16 (La Cigale / Farnsworth); and the other images correspond to plate number 17 : ‘Odalesque’ by Charles Berg.
Anyway, we are not certain about it, but hope that you have enjoyed the images.
