Laila Shahzada,Pakistan stamps





Painters of Pakistan,
Here are rare Stamps of Pakistan that you can get if you contact me.All are franked used stamps.





While every Pakistani deserves commendation for doing his bit for the progress and development of Pakistan, the artists and painters, beside other celebrities, painted endlessly to project the cultural aspirations of their dear country Pakistan. There is a long list of these great painters and calligraphers, but few definitely stand out above the rest. Recently on 14 August 2006, the Pakistan Post issued a set of ten commemorative stamps to honour these few. Herein under is a brief on each of the chosen ones, beside exclusive sites in Pakistan Paedia on some of them. In fact this is a posthumous tribute to ten great painters who helped to raise an awareness of art in Pakistan and established their names in universal art world.(A few great names like ChughtaiUstad Allah Bakhsh, Haji Muhammad Sharif and Aftab Zafar are missing here for the reason that a set of commemorative stamps has already been issued by the Pakistan Post)These stamps have been designed by Adil Salahuddin, general manager Pakistan Post. A graduate from the National College of Art, Lahore, he is also designer of over 550 stamps for the Pakistan Post.



Laila Shahzada (1926-1994)





Laila Shahzada's early years of schooling were spent in England. Adolescence was spent in the family home in India, where she was surrounded by the traditions of the past. She spoke of silver furniture, bowls of pearls, iridescent ornaments cool to the touch that were intrinsic ingredients of this period in her life. Reality came with partition, when life itself became the only object to be considered. Her earliest paintings of the 1950s were delicate tentative, in marked contrast to the later forceful work executed as 'Drift Moods'. Initially trained in England in drawing and watercolour, Laila received early encouragement in Pakistan from Fyzee Rahamin and his musicologist wife, Attiya Begum. In those days, there were few women artists in Pakistan, and it was Nagi who taught her to use oils. She made a great impact on the media when the “Drift Moods” paintings were exhibited in 1964, a series inspired by pieces of driftwood battered into distorted forms by the power of the sea. These Laila compared to the human condition, forced into unnatural shapes by stronger powers.Later inspired by the artifacts of the Indus Valley Civilization, she worked on a series titled “Moenjodaro”, shown in New York, where she was awarded a gold medal and the Key of the city of New York in 1975. Laila has painted seventy historical paintings, a substantial contribution to this genre. In 1995 her work was included in an exhibition of Paintings from Pakistan at the Pacific, Asia Museum, California where her landscape paintings were graded with those of Georgia O\'keefe. She was awarded the Tamgha-i-Imtiaz in 1986, and in 1994 was posthumously awarded The Presidents Award for the Pride of Performance.
