July Night by Zhukovsky Postcard

I again got lucky with this postcard. I was able to find both the title of the painting on the postcard and a biography of the artist. The painting on the postcard is the work of S.Y. Zhukovsky and it is entitled "July Night." Stanislav Yulianovich Zhukovsky was born in Yendrikhovtsy, Grodno province, in 1875. He became a celebrated painter associated with the Impressionist movement. He was dedicated to landscape painting. During World War II, he was arrested by the Nazis and sent to the Prushkov concentration camp, where he died in 1944.
