Modern Taiwanese Paintings FDC from TAIWAN

FDC Name:Modern Taiwanese Paintings.
Issue date:4th AUG'2010
To introduce the achievements of earlier generations of Taiwanese painters, Chunghwa Post has issued a series of four stamp sets featuring modern Taiwanese paintings. Now the Post is following up with another set of two stamps from the collection of the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, featuring Bamboo Grove in Early Summer and Pear Espalier. The stamps are printed in color offset by Cardon Enterprise Co., Ltd. and as a se-tenant gutter pair. The gutter bears the Chinese characters for “2010 Philately Day” and has a magnifying glass design and two rows of perforations. These was released on August 9, 2010 (Philately Day). The designs follow: 
1. Bamboo Grove in Early Summer (NT$5): Tsai Yun-yan (1908-1977) was originally named Tsai Yung. His paintings are characterized by vibrant color and highly detailed compositions. Bamboo Grove in Early Summer depicts the lush scenery of a bamboo grove with layers of bamboo overlaid with the foliage of a giant elephant’s ear and a loquat tree. A bird perches on a branch of tree bringing a greater sense of vivacity to the painting. The beautiful composition, with its lush detail and luxuriant yet elegant colors, dazzles the eye. Tsai demonstrates a powerful command of line, and the outlines of the objects are clear and precise. Though complex, the painting still has a strong sense of order.
2. Pear Espalier (NT$25): Lu Yun-sheng (1913-1968), also known as Lu Yun-you, was a student of Lin Yu-shan. His works were selected for the Taiwan Fine Art Exhibition and Taiwan Viceroy Art Exhibition seven times. After the end of World War II, he won first place honors three years in a row at the fifth, sixth, and seventh Taiwan Provincial Fine Art exhibitions. Pear Espalier depicts the scene of a pear tree in full bloom and laden with fruits. The realistic composition is simple and very lifelike with a color palette that is exuberant without being gaudy. The composition features both a magnanimous air as well as a delicate and clever sensibility. At the eighth Taiwan Fine Art Exhibition, the painting was awarded a Special Selection Prize and the Taiwan Fine Art Exhibition Prize.
