Nice recent posts of art stamps, thanks to each contributor :D

Eli, I particularly like the French group of art stamps you have shown us.
They are quite original in theme, bright, inventive and cheerful.

A lovely engraved work, thanks Eli. I must say that the wonderfully vivid colous of the original, set off by the gold leaf, make the monochrome engraved stamp seem quiet and static in comparison with the fully three-dimensional "brighter than life" original...

Thank you to dzamorano in Malaga, Spain, for showing us those Laotian celebrations of Picassos's paintings.

I find the artwork on the 95K particularly attractive — the elongation, and the colour choice and distribution — though the length of the woman's fingers is a distraction...

Four Self-Portraits of Albrecht Dürer

Self-Portrait at the Age of Thirteen (1484): Located in the Albertina Museum in Vienna, Austria. This is one of the earliest known pieces by the artist.
Self-Portrait with Thistle Flower (1493): Displayed in the Louvre Museum, Paris, France. This is one of Dürer's early self-portraits and demonstrates his skill with oil technique at a young age.
Self-Portrait (1498): Housed in the Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain. It represents Dürer in his youth and is an early example of his work.
Self-Portrait with Fur Coat (1500): Located in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich, Germany. This is arguably the most famous self-portrait of Dürer and is an iconic representation of the artist at the peak of his career.

"Praying Hands" by Albrecht Dürer, created in 1508, is a renowned charcoal and blue chalk drawing depicting hands in prayer, likely belonging to an apostle. Located in the Albertina in Vienna, Austria, this work is celebrated for its detailed realism and symbolism of devotion, becoming one of the most iconic images in Western art for representing prayer.

The Wilton Diptych is a small, portable altarpiece, a masterpiece of late medieval English painting. Created around 1395, it is attributed to an unknown artist, often referred to as the Master of the Wilton Diptych. The diptych features two hinged panels; the left panel depicts King Richard II of England being presented to the Virgin Mary and Christ by three saints, while the right panel shows the Virgin Mary with the Christ Child surrounded by angels. Notable for its exquisite detail and use of vibrant colors, the Wilton Diptych is a significant example of the International Gothic style. It is currently housed in the National Gallery, London.

Four Studies of the Head of a Black Man (Peter Paul Rubens)
In this work, Rubens takes an exotic model, with pronounced racial features, and paints him in four different positions with as many expressions, using a limited palette from which the bright colors of his usual production are banned. It is an exercise and a discipline to which the author submits himself in search of intensity, where the rigor that Rubens professed is eloquently shown, a rigor that serves as a hidden and solid support to his baroque opulence. The character, unmistakable in his features, appears in other works of the same painter, especially in some of his epiphanies. He has also been recognized in paintings by Van Dyck. Therefore, it must be assumed that the black man was a model for both artists in Antwerp around the years 1615 to 1620, which is the period corresponding to the quadruple portrait.

Nice artworks, thanks Eli.

I was interested in the Hebrew title of this work, so I've looked up the voweled form,
and added some associated examples from my modest related knowledge.

Of course, Eli, there will be nothing new to you in my notes,
but they might be new and of interest to some other readers of this post :D

Nice artworks, thanks Eli.

The 15k L'Industrie by Meunier is my favourite — bright light and deep shadows, reminiscent of Rembrandt:

Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa), 1969<br />15k L'Industrie, by Constantin Meunier<br />(Yv 712, SG 699, Sc 661, Mi 358)
Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa), 1969
15k L'Industrie, by Constantin Meunier
(Yv 712, SG 699, Sc 661, Mi 358)
.
I have a "rule of thumb" that acronyms for major international organisations have one set of letters in English, and a permutation of the same set of letters (often simply a reversal) for the French name of the same organisation. Some examples and "near examples" to "prove" the point:

NATO = OTAN
North Atlantic Treaty Organization
= L'Organisation du traité de l'Atlantique Nord

ICJ = CIJ
International Court of Justice
= Cour internationale de justice

UNESCO = ONUESC
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
= L'Organisation des Nations unies pour l'éducation, la science et la culture

UN = ONU
United Nations
= L'Organisation des Nations unies

GA = AG
General Assembly
= Assemblée générale

UPU = UPU
Universal Postal Union
= Union postale universelle
(a palindromic acronym, even though an underlying reversal has occurred!)

* * * *
.

However, the DRCongo stamps you have shown contain a counter-example to my "rule of thumb" :o
They celebrate the 50th anniversary of this United Nations agency:

ILO = OIT
International Labour Organization
= L'Organisation internationale du travail
.

This time, the simple linework of Leopold Krakauer 's Thistles is what most appeals to me in that latest group of Israeli art stamps. These dry, prickly heads are a common feature of open Mediterranean hillsides in summer... Perhaps they are seen by the artist as a metaphor for survival in hard, dry conditions.

Israel, 1978:<br />&quot;Thistles&quot; by L. Krakauer
Israel, 1978:
"Thistles" by L. Krakauer
Once again, the voweled version of the title:
קוֹץ, קוֹצים
[kots, kotsim]
thistle, thistles
also: thorn, thorns
Even the word "קוֹץ" looks thorny!
.
Compare with this watercolour by Olga Markichova, a contemporary artist in Kazakhstan: the green, flowering thistles are still pliable and austerely beautiful — it's only when they die off, and become stiff and tough, that their thorniness dominates.

Thank you very much, Roger, for extra information which is always a pleasure to read. Maybe the artist see thistles as a metaphor for survival in hard, dry conditions, but in Israel we consider the cactus (Tsabar) as a metaphor for survival in such hard conditions.

Two paintings by the French painter Alexandre Debelle (1805 – 1897), designed and engraved by Georges Bétemps and issued by France on June 18, 1988 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution:

The Day of the Tiles (French: Journée des Tuiles) was an event that took place in the French town of Grenoble on 7 June in 1788. It was one of the first disturbances which preceded the French Revolution, and is credited by a few historians as its start:

The Assembly of Vizille, 1788, (French: Assemblée de Vizille) or Estates General of Dauphiné (Réunion des états généraux du Dauphiné) was the result of a meeting of various representatives in Grenoble. Its purpose was to discuss the events of The Day of the Tiles, one of the first revolts preceding the French Revolution:

They are sad, lonely images that Lemieux shares with us, not the memories of happy events but the sadness of time passing, leaving events irretrievably in its wake...He rather belies his own name, giving us that sadder rather than the better view of the past.

While the English translations capture some of that sense, the French strikes the tone so much more poetically:
Jean Paul Lemieux wrote: Ce qui me hante le plus,
c'est le temps qui passe,
le temps qui est passé...
Anne Hébert wrote:...le temps perdu hante toute l'oeuvre de Lemieux
