TAIPEI 2023 – 39th Asian International Stamp Exhibition is held on August 11-15, 2023, at Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1. In conjunction with the theme of the fifth day of the exhibition “Stamp Day,” Chunghwa Post has released a set of two stamps on the scroll painting Myriad Butterflies by the Qing dynasty painter Yu Sheng, a work held in the National Palace Museum. With denominations of NT$13 and NT$35, the stamps are in a se-tenant block. They are described below: Yu Sheng, the painter of Myriad Butterflies, was skilled at painting birds-and-flowers, insects-and-grasses and landscapes, and he used Western techniques for coloration and shading. In the painting numerous butterflies are flitting among wildflowers and grasses. The coloring is gorgeously rich and meticulously rendered, with dry-brush techniques masterfully employed to capture the detail on the butterflies’ wings. The painting is a tour de force.
