|Holy Family with a Shepherd (1510) by Titian (1490-1576)|
New Zealand 2d Stamp Issued 1963
National Gallery, London
New Zealand postal authorities selected a third painting from the National Gallery in London for inclusion in the Christmas stamps during the 1960s. This one was in a larger format to do justice to the larger size of the underlying oil on canvas painting by Titian. A shepherd is in adoration of the Madonna and child.
