Barabás Miklós - Girl in the Woods

Barabas Miklos (1810-1898)  - Girl in the Woods
Hungarian Stamp issued 1966
Magyar Posta
This is another Hungarian Stamp from 1966, being part of a series of stamps from the 19th Century.  Other Barabas Miklos paintings were also depicted in these stamps - this is typical of his work, depicting romanticised scenes of beauties in the wild forests - perhaps a pre-cursor to are that would follow in the latter years of the 19th century and early 20th century - depicting an unrealistic harmony with nature.
