You are right - this portrait is most similar to the image of the brand. Head turn, hairstyle, tie are similar. Only the face looks older.

Yes, it is closer, but not similar enough for me to think it was the source. I think there must be another portrait that hasn't made it on to the internet... Eh well!

Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of English painter J. M. William Turner (1775-1851), designed and engraved by French artist Eugene Lacaque (1914-2005), and issued by Luxembourg on March 14, 1977 as one of four stamps in a set commemorating "famous visitors" to Luxembourg, Scott No. 594, plus an image of a detail from Portrait of J. M. W. Turner, making his sketch for the celebrated picture of 'Mercury & Argus' (c.1830) by Charles Turner (1774-1857), an English mezzotint engraver and draftsman specializing in portraiture (and no relation to the illustrious painter).

Here are images of a souvenir sheet and the six stamps included within it depicting paintings by Ivan Aguéli (born John Gustaf Agelii, 1869-1917) who, after his conversion to Islam, was a Swedish wandering Sufi, painter and author whose art was a unique form of miniature Post-Impressionism in which he blended color to create a sense of depth and distance, making him one of the founders of the Swedish contemporary art movement, printed by lithography (Thomas De La Rue & Co., Ltd.), and issued by Sweden on June 6, 1969 to commemorate the artist's birth centenary, Scott Nos. 821 and 821a.-f., Facit Nos. 657-662.

Paintings by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) exhibited in Liechtenstein Museum, Vienna, Austria, designed (after Rubens) by Karl Gessner, engraved by Alfred Fischer and issued by Liechtenstein on September 9, 1976 to mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of Rubens:

Three Music-making Angels (Detail):

Artist's sons Albert and Nicholas Rubens:

Erichthonius discovered by the daughters of Cecrops:

Athena visited the smith-god Hephaestus to request some weapons, but Hephaestus tried to seduce her. Athena fled, Hephaestus caught her and tried to rape her, but she fought him off. During the struggle, his semen fell on her thigh, and Athena, in disgust, wiped it away with a scrap of wool and flung it to the earth. As she fled, Erichthonius was born from the semen. Athena, wishing to raise the child in secret, placed him in a box.

Athena gave the box to the three daughters of Cecrops, the king of Athens, and warned them never to open it. Overcome with curiosity, they opened the box, which contained the infant and future-King, Erichthonius. The sisters were terrified by what they saw in the box: either a snake coiled around an infant, or an infant that was half-man and half-serpent. They went insane and threw themselves off the Acropolis.
