Clair De Lune


Claude Debussy

Claude Debussy is depicted here on a postage stamp issued by France in 1939. In the background we can see characters from Debussy’s work, Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune (Prelude to the afternoon of a faun).

The caption (in French) on the stamp reads: Pour les chômeurs intellectuels [For unemployed intellectuals]. For every copy of this postage stamp sold, 10 centimes was donated to help this group of workers.
