Hi all,

Is there anybody who could assist me in getting more info on **** Findlay please. I tried to google many different words but could not get very much. When was he born, is he still alive, was his sketches just used for the definitive issues or was he commissioned to do it etc. Is there a www site where I could find some info.

Thanks

Joan

Here's a blog WORLD PHILATELIA: REP. OF SOUTH AFRICA -COVER FROM MICHAEL

 

And this is from the PO. "The late **** Findlay was well known for his fi ne

paintings of birds and plants. His versatility is refl ected

in the variety of artwork depicted on our stamps.

These include birds of prey, water birds, medicinal

plants, edible wild fruit, aloes, butterfl ies, indigenous

trees and ferns, proteas and small mammals."

 

There are many more if you google "Findlay artist south african stamps"

 

hope that helps.

trees and ferns, proteas and small mammals.:nuts:

Findlay was mostly (if not always) commissioned.
