2014 France Fr Fr French stamp club, Société Philatélique et Cartophile de Besançon tried to celebrate Courbet's explicit The Origins of the World with a personalised stamp.

The stamp and cancellation are shown here, the cards overleaf.

Feb14 Austria 21 Jun 2013 62c stamp Richard Gerstl semi-nude self portrait. Damn, I was in Austria a week ago (Apr2014) and saw this on sale in the Salzburg main post office: it was a quiet day and one of the counter staff tried to sell me some of the commemoratives on display. So it goes. 12Apr14 Delcampe €0.83

Jul14 Monaco 17 Jul 2012 €1.35 A messy stamp with bits of ondon and Olmpics and the ubiquitous discus. Rejected as ID. Image from ebay  
Jul14 Spain Nov 2013 SG4806 Christmas Issue, Mary feeding Jesus. Possibly PI. Image from ebay  
Aug-Oct 14 none     No entries in the thematics pages, but a piece on Courbet's explicit The Origins of the World that the French postal service refused to feature on a personalised stamp. Details to follow   Courbet

1.The Gasolin 3 album cover on the Denmark 2010 issue is not a nude, other by implication, but merits inclusion. The colouration on the stamp shown leaves something to be desired and this would appear to be a common problem.
