The satyr Marsyas challenged Apollo to a contest of music. The contest was judged by Midas. The terms of the contest stated that the winner could punish the defeated one. Marsyas lost and was flayed alive for his hubris to challenge a god.

Claude Andréotto was born in Paris, France, in1949. He spent five years at the Ecole Estienne where he studied under the guidance of the famous stamp engraver René Cottet, while also taking lessons from the engraver Pierre Forget. Andréotto started engraving stamps in 1974. That same year he engraved his first stamp for France: a single stamp to mark the 500th birth anniversary (in 1973) of the astronomer Nicolas Copernicus.

In 1976, Andréotto won his first Grand Prix de l’Art Philatelique, for his French stamp issued for Juvarouen 76. In 1984, Andréotto won his second Grand Prix de l’Art Philatelique, for his French stamp promoting Philex-Jeunes 84-Dunkerque. Andréotto's stamps have won ‘most beautiful stamp of the year’ three times; in 1997, 2005 and 2008. In 2004, he won the Cérès Prize for his Tourism stamp of Bordeaux.

From the early 1990s on he was very interested in the possibilities of computerised art and it has remained a feature in his work ever since. Claude Andréotto passed away on 29 October 2017. (Source: www.stampengravers.blogspot.com)

Here is a selection of stamps, all were designed and engraved by Claude Andréotto:

UNESCO campaign to save the Monuments of Mohejo-Daro, Pakistan, issued by Mali on September 6, 1976:

"The Tortoise and the Hare", fable by Aesop, semi-postal stamp for donation to the Red Cross organisation, issued by France on December 2, 1978:

France 1978 Rabbit turtle a.jpg


Claude Andréotto designed and engraved many stamps for use in French Southern and Antarctic Territories (FSAT - TAAF) depicting the special fauna of the Islands. I have a small collection of them and here I picked several showing birds:


Kelp Gull (Larus dominicanus), issued on January 1, 1986:

Hi,

I don't know if I will get information about the recorders for each image scanned by me, since I extracted information from Colnect and not all blocks have additional information. Do you know any other website where I can search for this information?
Thanks.

lima34,

The title of the thread is, "Engraved Stamp Beauties". This means that an engraver took his/her time to engrave the plates that were used for printing these stamps. You can't just post anything that you think it looks like it has been engraved, in this thread. This is the reason why I asked you for the names of the engravers. ;)

Please do not post anything in this thread before doing some research. :)

You can't just post anything that you think it looks like it has been engraved, in this thread.
Since when do we have such rules around here ?

I agree that posting images of non-engraved stamps is inappropriate, and that information about engravers is a plus, but not that failure to track down and show the engraver's name can or should be forbidden.

Hi figmente,

Thank you for your clarification.
I would just like to understand where I should post the images of the stamps or Souvenir Sheet scanned by me. :)

We all make mistakes and get confused at times so don't feel too bad about it. I'm a bit of a fanatic about engraved stamps but I still like seeing others. As was suggested, perhaps you could start a thread of stamps that appeal to you.

As for engraver names, for older stamps you could try my website at engravedstamps.net but I haven't caught up with most of the recent ones. To find out more about the engravers and their work you might find Adrian Keppel's blog fascinating at https://stampengravers.blogspot.com/

It's all a learning curve and stamps are a great way to learn about many things.
Where do the years go? I went from philandering to philately and didn't even notice.

Oh figmente,

I am very sorry that I have not followed your rules or the board rules for that matter. Please do forgive me. :oops: How could I have been so wrong???

I only did try to tell our new member that he should think about whether his stamps do belong in this thread. Did I not?

Hi,

I don't know if I will get information about the recorders for each image scanned by me, since I extracted information from Colnect and not all blocks have additional information. Do you know any other website where I can search for this information?
Thanks.
lima34,

The title of the thread is, "Engraved Stamp Beauties". This means that an engraver took his/her time to engrave the plates that were used for printing these stamps. You can't just post anything that you think it looks like it has been engraved, in this thread. This is the reason why I asked you for the names of the engravers. ;)

Please do not post anything in this thread before doing some research. :)

I thought this thread was called ENGRAVED stamp beauties?
Thank you for your help, Stewie1980! :)

I was just helping our new member.
I guess you have only read what you wanted to read, but that's OK because some people do that.

Thank you for your comment!

Enjoy your evening!
It does pay if you are humble and kind.

Hello Lima, welcome to Stampboards. Although the stamps you posted are not engraved they are really nice and beautiful (especially the Hungarians) and thanks you share them with us. Since 1850, Brazil issued many great engraved stamps (selos gravados?). In case you have several examples, you can post here so we can all enjoy the stamps of your country which is less represented in this thread. Eli

We should definitely fix that. Here are a few to start.
BR20.jpg
1850 The engraver of this series is unconfirmed but was possibly C.C. de Azevedo and O.J.de Faria. As with the British penny black, the security scrollwork in the background would have been done by a machine.
BR47.jpg
1866 Pedro II. Engraved by Charles Kennedy Burt and printed by the American Bank Note Company.
BR58.jpg
1878 Pedro II. Engraved by George Frederick Cumming Smillie and printed by the American Bank Note Company.
BR432.jpg
1922 Independence Centenary: The Declaration of Ypiranga. Engraver unknown. Printed by Waterlow.
BR711.jpg
1945 Victory and Peace: Tranquillity. Engraved by W. B. deFreitas. Designed by L. Campos. Printed by National Printing Works, Rio de Janeiro.

Reconstruction of the tomb of Avicenna – Iran (I)

I like very much the earlier stamps of Iran show the rich culture and mythology and the old history of Persia and the Persian people. To raise donations to the reconstruction of the tomb of the Persian physician and philosopher Avicenna (980-1037), Iran issued five sets of five semi-postal stamps each show old Persian art and archaeological places. The stamps were engraved by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co., London and issued in years 1948-1954.

Here is the first set issued on January 30, 1948. In the next post I will show the second set:


Lion and Bull, Persepolis: Old Iranian Mythological Symbol:

Iran 1948 Avicenna set 1a.jpg

Persian Warrior, Persepolis:

Iran 1948 Avicenna set 1b.jpg

Palace of King Darius the Great, Persepolis:

Iran 1948 Avicenna set 1c.jpg

Tomb of King Cyrus the Great, Pasargadae:

Iran 1948 Avicenna set 1d.jpg

Enthronement of King Darius the Great, Persepolis:

Iran 1948 Avicenna set 1e.jpg

Iran 1948 Avicenna set 1Com a.jpg
