|Thread: Which engravers / engraved stamps do you most admire?|
I have just come upon this thread and as far as I can see no one has answered your inquiry as to the name of the engraver of the Spanish 1953 50ptas airmail. It would be unreasonable to believe that it could be other than the engraver Alfonso Sanchez-Toda, but I have no proof of it. The surname is the same as that of the engraver of La Maja Desnuda, and again it would be unreasonable not to believe there is a family connection. More than that I know not, except that Alfonso also enjoyed engraving nude women. No doubt there was a market for nude women, especially in Spain!
If you enjoy looking at nude women, google his name along with "grabador" -- Spanish for engraver; nothing to do with grabbing them!.
