Herbert K. Bourne (1825-1907) was an English engraver of great skill; though most of his work was of large-scale commercial engravings, at least three postage stamps are attributed to him:

Queen Victoria, on the 1878 Falkland Islands series for Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co.


The Chalon head portrait of Victoria on numerous early Queensland stamps printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co.


And the Columbus portrait on the 1900 "Cabezones" series of Chile, for Waterlow & Sons.


Relatively little is known of his work on stamps -- I could find nothing about him posted previously on this thread. If anyone has further examples I would like to hear about them.

Paintings from the Princely Collection in Metropolitan Museum, NY, USA, designed by C. Eberle and issued by Liechtenstein on September 2, 1985:

Portrait of Stephen Gardiner (1483 – 1555)by Quentin Matsys (1466 – 1530), engraved by Wolfgang Seidel:
Stephen Gardiner was an English bishop and politician during the English Reformation period who served as Lord Chancellor during the reign of Queen Mary I and King Philip.

Portrait of Clara Serena (1611 - 1623), daughter of Rubens, by Peter Paul Rubens (1577 – 1640), engraved by Maria Magdalena Laurent:

Portrait of Duke of Urbino**, by Raphael (1483 - 1530), engraved by Wolfgang Seidel:

** - The above painting by Raphael was long considered a portrait of Guidobaldo I di Montefeltro because an inscription added on the back of the painting at a later date describes the subject of the work as the Duke of Urbino. Today, however, the similarities with portraits known to be of Guidobaldo are not sufficient and the identity of the man in the picture remains a mystery.

Quote:
Most Czech Jews were initially deported by the German occupiers to Theresienstadt concentration camp and only later killed. However, some Czech Jewish children were rescued by Kindertransport and escaped to the United Kingdom and other Allied countries. Some were reunited with their families after the war, while many lost parents and relatives to the concentration camps.It is estimated that of the 118,310 Jews living in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia upon the German invasion in 1939, 26,000 emigrated legally and illegally; 80,000 were murdered by the Nazis; and 10,000 survived the concentration camps.
