Royal Mail Stamp – September 2019


In the Fall of 2019, the Royal Mail of Great Britain licensed from the artist his painting Golden Devil – Sovereign of the Seas as one of eight images to be used especially for the Royal Mail’s new set of postage stamps commemorating the history of the Royal Navy.

Along with the ‘Royal Navy Ships’ stamp packet, the image was also used on a Royal Mail First Day cover special Mailing Envelope and a set of eight postcards. All of the stamps include a cameo in white of the Queen in the upper right corner.

The original painting of Golden Devil - Sovereign of the Seas is in the collection of the artist. See the website Historical Ships section to view a larger image of the work.
