This postcard shows The Resting Husbandman from Iľanovo, a work by the well-known Slovak painter Janko Alexy. Painted in the early 1920s, the piece illustrates that Slovaks from that period were becoming increasingly interested in their culture. The husbandman's clothes - a wide-brimmed hat, a linen shirt, woolen trousers and boots - was the typical "uniform" of husbandmen throughout the Liptov region, from Ružomberok to Liptovský Hrádok. Iľanovo itself is one of the oldest settlements in the region, with the first references to the village dating back to the 13th century.
