I admit the first visual clue was rather obscure. Hopefuly, this one will be more helpful.

Hello

Concerning the stamp reproducing a painting of France above

It is about a painting painted around 1864 by Honoré Daumier which is entitled Crispin and Scapin it is exposed to the museum of Orsay, in Paris (magnificent museum which it is absolutely necessary to visit when one goes to Paris).

He was inspired by the play "The treachery of Scapin" Molière ( in french Les fourberies de Scapin). The two characters in the room confide in the ear.

It could be the stamp issued by France in 1967 dedicated to the centenary of the death of the painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

I am a relative newcomer to this thread. The images selected often
draw attention to details of the stamps that really enhance our
appreciation of their beauty and artistic quality. I hope the thread
regains lively participation now we are in the new decade — thanks to
elcooperativo and joelk for their recent posts contributing to a revival
of activity here. :D

The image posted by PdotK on [Mon Nov 04, 2019 16:29:11 pm]
showed enough of the stamp for it to be quite recognisable (though
the postmark gave the unintended impression of a tatoo — how did
tatoos become "fashionable", when in fact the Maori and Polynesian
tradition used them in a culturally significant way?)

Should we wait for the last prize-winner to submit a new image to be
identified, or would it be acceptable for another Stampboards supporter
to step up? May I offer: if there is no new challenge image posted over
the next week, I will contribute one to reactivate the thread. :o

Hi Roger,

Thank you very much for your nice post! :D

It looks as though officially, the next poster of a stamp to guess should be Carlos (Elcooperativo). If he does not do so in the coming week, then yes, by all means do post the next guess.

Best Regards,
