I have some stamps with nude women, and I want to see if someone else has some.
Hello all, I only have a few of these art works, they do not fit into my "Costumes and Uniforms" theme. I think that I have some Soviet era nudes and some, maybe from Hungary, I will have to look.
These from Romania.
Date of issue: 1969-03-22
Nice ones, I like it because it represents some paintings of well now Romanian painters here.
Thanks for sharing!
I guess we won't ever have such sets released from Malaysia as such stamps would cause some huge uproar.
I think "acts" should be a sub - theme for arts subject on stamps.
I havent seen any other nude stamps
I'm sorry but which other types would fall under "acts" ?
Naked painting of a Man or a Woman is reffered to as Act
Thanks. I was not aware of this. It is something new for me.
Nice pistol.How about the "Act" for men .Do you have some you can share

I recall UAE have also quite an impressive series of Nudes, which is a bit amusing when you replace in the context. will have to dig in my albums
Is it a correct observation that male painters painted female nudes while male sculptors sculpted both nude males and females?
The stamp Makanudo illustrated has a strange setting. It appears to be a domestic scene, but did young women normally sit at the table only partially clothed?

I also agree with Kamatsuram's amusement about nudism in the UAE. Seems a little out of place there.

Try to get a contemporain Nude paint of Queen Elisabeth II, i bet no much arousing and no plus value in perspective.Definitly not my cup of Tea
Where are the stamps with 'Nude' animals? IMO, naked Otters, sans bikinis are 'Hot'!
(Just a thought)
your observation is wrong.Just take Dürer´s works f.i.
The Bhutan stamp Makanudo showed,depicts a painting of
Francois Clouet a Netherlander,who became French in 1541.
The painting is titled "Lady in the Bath".Possibly Diane de
Poitiers,mistress of Henri II or Marie Touchet,mistress of
Like in Roman times,the bath in the Middle-Ages
was not just a place of cleaning,but more a wellness place.
Food,entertainment and socializing were quite common.
You have a good chance to see the original painting,because
it hangs in the "National Gallery of Arts" in Washington D.C.
Just goes to show how little i know about art, painting, & women's baths.
