CHILDREN ON STAMPS
The Romanian artists painted some very delicate portraits of children, full of sensibility and understanding. I show below some of the nicest ones, that appeared on Romanian postal stamps.
A set of 6 values, showing children on paintings, was issued in 1984, Scott 3222-3227 (the row above and the second from left below). 3L. Portrait of a Child, by N. Tonitza; 2L.
