Following the release of Painting and Calligraphy on the Fan Souvenir Sheets on January 13, 2016, the Post continues the series by issuing a souvenir sheet, featuring "Traveler at Shanyin County" on the fan by Lan Ying, a painter of Ming dynasty. The artwork is housed at the National Museum of History.
Lan Ying was a master in landscapes, flowers and bamboos, and human figures. In addition to Huang Gongwang, he also drew his inspiration from literati painters of Tang, Song, and Yuan dynasties. This explains the splendid "old master" lineage in his works. Lan was the last of the professional painters working in the tradition of the Zhe School. The ink painting on the fan boasts extremely polished brushwork and exquisite composition: a few thatched houses are dispersed in the forested mountain, and a lone figure leisurely boats on a small river. The stamp on the souvenir sheet, at NT$25, is fan-shaped. To add to philately interest, a pair souvenir sheet with the quantity of 250,000 is also issued.
A stamp folio will also be released on the stamp’ s date of issuance. The folio will contain one sheet each of the souvenir sheet and pair souvenir sheet of the issue as well as one sheet each printed on paper and bamboo chips of “Painting and Calligraphy on the Fan Souvenir Sheets” issued on January 13, 2016.
