A painting postcard showing murders occurring, Wien in 1470. Thanks erlkoenigstochter for the lottery. As a postal label covers the description partially, nothing more could I know this painting.

A 140 eurocent 100 years of airfield in Wiener Neustadt stamp with an aircraft was used to send this postcard. It was sent on 14.9.2009 from Krems an der Donau with postcode 3500. Very neat postmark.
