Goya Paintings

1967, 13 November

Printer: Harrison and Sons
Designer: Unknown
Sheet Size: 2 x 3 - tete-beche
Perf.: 14 1/2 x 13 1/2

The second Painting series consisted of three stamps of paintings by the Spanish painter Francisco Goya (1746 - 1828). Again, no images of Middle Eastern individuals nor landscapes were used. One must remember that the topic Paintings is very popular among topical collectors and the selection of such was to appeal to such collectors. They too were printed by Harrison & Sons of London.

Each stamp was issued in a separate sheet of six (2 x 3, and the souvenir sheet also followed the same format as the earlier set (issued 7 October 1967) - a pair of each stamp, printed tete-beche, in the sheet, with a plain border. Oddly the release notification shown below says there is a decorative border on the sheets.
