Design:
These galloping horses are from a selection of paintings by the famous Chinese painter Xu Beihong (1895-1953). Xu Beihong, born in Yixing, Jiangsu Province, began to learn painting from his father when he was nine. At about 13, he was already making a living by selling his pictures. He became a teacher at Beijing University's Institute of Painting in 1917 and went to France in 1919 to study painting. Xu was a painter of great attainment in sketches and portraits, good at capturing the character and mood of the subjects by realistic methods. He depicted mainly historical stories in his early works, but switched to realistic subjects later. His subjects also included flowers and birds, landscapes and animals, all painted in a concise and vigorous style. He was specially skilled in painting horses in a bold and unrestrained style. In the pictures on the stamp we can see his horses coming to life. After the founding of New China, Xu Beihong became president of the Central Academy of Fine Arts and chairman of the Union of Chinese Artists. After his death on September 23, 1953, the Chinese government built the Xu Beihong Memorial Hall in memory of his contributions to art.This set of souvenir sheet depicts six galloping horses selected from paintings by Xu Beihong. This painting was created in 1942, 95 cm. long, 181 cm. wide. Around the design is flanked by silver gray laciness, which enhances Chinese painting 's style and makes the design elegant.

Hello China....

Nice stamps.........I love the simplicity of the drawings/design. A lot of newer material, to me, seems cluttered....like they're trying too hard to appeal to too many topical collectors.

Size of Stamp: 38.5*62mm.
Size of souvenir sheet: 120*86mm.



Design:
Qi Baishi (1863-1957) was an eminent contemporary Chinese painter. Born in a poor peasant family in Xiangtan county, Hunan Province, he began to take a keen interest in painting when he was only seven. In the course of his life, he painted over a thousand pictures, wrote several thousand poems and engraved over a thousand seals. He harmoniously combined the art of traditional Chinese painting with folk art, preserving the characteristics of the traditional painting while making new developments and creating a distinct style of his own. Qi Baishi bequeathed a rich legacy to the Chinese people's treasure-house of art. Qi Baishi picked most of his subjects from simple things in nature, "depicting ten thousand insects and catching the vivid images of a hundred birds" as he put it. He inherited the traditional method of freehand brushwork in Chinese painting, giving his subjects a likeness not only in appearance but also in spirit. He said the purpose of his paintings was "to show what is of far-reaching significance by depicting things close at hand" and "to express a profound meaning through ordinary subjects". Every one of his paintings appears fresh and original and conveys to the viewer a feeling of closeness while providing much food for thought.This souvenir sheet is made up of two designs, the left one is a pencil sketch portrait of Qi Bashi by modern painter Fan Zeng, which is printed with the charaters " 齐白石作品选"(selected works of Qi Baishi) and the brief introduce about Qi Baishi. The right one is one works of Qi Baishi, which is named as "祖国万岁"( long live motherland).

I love pen and ink drawings and these stamps fall in that category or art. They are absolutely beautiful. I may have to track down some and add them to my "miscellaneous stuff I really like" collection.
