|Red Boy - Sir Thomas Lawrence|
This painting is often paired with Gainsborough's famous Blue Boy. The Red Boy, actual title 'Master Lambton', is a portrait of the eldest son of Lord Lambton, 1st Earl of Durham.
The next two stamps are from a set of four on British Paintings issued on 12th August 1968.
|Elizabeth I - Unknown artist|
|The Hay Wain - Constable|
Interestingly this stamp is first example of a dog on a British stamp. You need very good eyes to see it on here. The oil painting (copy) on my lounge wall shows it clearly. [I'll put up a photo for you to see later]. The dog is in the middle foreground on the edge of the water.
My next stamp is one of a set of four issued on 19th February 1975 to commemorate the bicentenary of J M W Turner's birth.
|Peace - Burial at Sea; JMW Turner|
Finally I found this first day cover at the stamp stall in the local market for 50p.
|Artists - 24 Sir Henry Moore; 28 Edward Bawden;|
33 Stanley Spencer; 39 Ben Nicholson
