Renoir in Guernsey



In 1883 Renoir visited Guernsey in the Channel Islands and in 1993 the Post Office issued a set of stamps to commemorate the centenary of his month-long stay.  These are just two of the set of five.



This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"

  4. Very nice stamps. For once, the Queen doesn't seem distracting and out of place in the design.

  6. These are lovely. And I din't know Renoir was in Guernsey!
    I agree about the head shot - I like how the colour matches the bottom border.
