The cheerful painting by Marc Chagall (1887-1985) of "The Cow with a Parasol" appeared on a commemorative stamp of Bhutan for the artist's 100th birthday.

Mozambique (or an agency) chose Chagall's happy "Cow with a Parasol" for the stamp honoring the artist's 125th birthday.

The thirsty flower is a Waratah, being given relief by a Water hose.

Dahomey issued an airmail stamp commemorating 100 years of the international meteorological organization, 1973. It includes several icons for weather conditions: perhaps one umbrella is for rainy days, the other for providing shade. Note emblem of the World Meteorological Organization.

Hi Aussies, W is also for weather! Very important when considering umbrellas. Fun to see the wambat again - he visited here already on page 7, but is such a nice creature that he wanted to come again. Glad to see you are still enjoying the thread. K.

The Solomon Islands (or an agency for them) issued a sheet of four paintings by American impressionists in 2016. One of them shows "Woman seated in a Garden" by F. C. Frieseke (1874-1939). The similarity of his style to that of French impressionists is obvious.

Hi Rod, Are you still making a database? K.

Colin Campbell Cooper (18561937) was an American impressionist painter, renowned for his paintings of architecture, especially of skyscrapers in NYC and other large cities. His painting "Summer" is much more like those of his French contemporaries. Solomon Islands (or an agency for that country, 2016)

Making a Chinese umbrella requires great skill and endless patience. Stamp of 1993, Taiwan, from a set featuring traditional crafts. They are actually like works of art, especially when painted, for practical use.

Hi Rod, Very impressive!! K.

Hello Kris,
the advantage of an image database, I can print a list in 2 seconds.
If you wish, offer me a suitable email addy, and I'll drop a list off for you. (editable)
It is not what I generally use as a naming convention, but here it is in its unadulterated form. (or part thereof) (If you want it)

Caveat: I only use 1980's software, you may not be able to open an MSWorks word processor doc, MS Word may do.

I would have never guessed that. I thought it was an icon of the Buddhist "The Wheel of Life"
We have a Bodhi tree at our temple.

Buddha Shakyamuni was born of royal parents in an area that is now in Nepal. In 2006 Nepal celebrated his 2550th birthday and issued a brightly colored stamp on which he is shown with his royal umbrella - maybe it has pearls around the edge.

(Hi Rod, I also wondered what the round object in the India stamp was - looked it up on several sites and indeed it is a parasol. K.)

Sairey Gamp, that marvelous character in the story of Martin Chuzzlewit, by Charles Dickens, had a rather large umbrella (but then again, she had quite a circumference). Stamp design like a typical pub-sign, so often seen on the isles. 1970
