re: New Marianne Definitive

Perhaps the New World's obsession with "youth" and
its abhorrence of the ageing process have, unfortunately,
gravitated overseas?

I await the protests and criticisms from philatelic activists,
such as myself, decrying the eroticisation* and botoxification
of postage stamps.

Am I the only member of Stamporama afflicted with wrinkles
and sagging body parts?

re: New Marianne Definitive

Wiki ""Marianne is a national emblem of France and an allegory of Liberty and Reason.
Marianne is displayed in many places in France and holds a place of honor in town halls and law courts. She symbolizes the "Triumph of the Republic", a bronze sculpture overlooking the Place de la Nation in Paris.
Her profile stands out on the official seal of the country, is engraved on French euro coins and appears on French postage stamps; it also was featured on the former franc currency. Marianne is one of the most prominent symbols of the French Republic.""

Quite frankly I am quite fond of the new design.

Contrary to rumors, it was not picked by President Hollande, but by school children who reviewed all contest entries, and voted for their preference. Past Mariannes were inspired by famous figures, including Brigitte Bardot, I am told.
The key word is inspired, as the final drawing is a composite fictional image, just as Cat Woman, or Wonder Woman. The artist reported, after winning the contest, that her latest Marianne was "a mixture of several women but especially Femen topless leader, Inna Shevchenko".
Since Marianne was originally depicted topless, that makes a lot of sense.

I am working on my "US Marianne" Symbol of Freedom in the Red White and Blue (also the colors of France). Who would you pick as your inspiration, if you were to submit an entry to a fictitious US Marianne Philatelic Contest? Hope to share my entry later. Should we start a new contest?

re: New Marianne Definitive

I've been coming across more and more Mariannes as I leaf through my France catalogue. I checked through and I reckon there are 16 different Mariannes so far. They'd make an excellent topic - from the feisty and determined ones, like the Gandon, to the delicate beauty queen (is she modelled on BB?) chosen by Hollande. And the Dulac, the Cheffer, the Luquet, the Cocteau, even the Briat. The new one - Marianne engagee is another winner, I think. She was chosen by President Macron - a cautious choice, probably with his wife's reaction in mind.

I notice also that the Mariannes keep on appearing - either commemorated, or in another design as though they're endorsing something, like the constitution or the anti-aids campaign, or Europe, water protection, the environment or the French Association of Mayors. If we approach Mr Macron we could probably get her to endorse SOR.

Anyway, I think I'll give it a go. I'd certainly like to get one of the 2008 booklets with 12 different Mariannes, or the 2013 miniature sheet.

re: New Marianne Definitive

Yes - and not all Marianne's are identified as such.

With all the other French definitive allegory figures, while some are ID'd otherwise - Ceres, France etc., if you look closely they all have Marianne-ish influences in the design.Even "the sower" is wearing a Phrygian cap.

You're right, Malcolm, the sower is wearing a Phrygian cap. By the way, the sower first appeared in 1903, before she got the millinery modelling job and it wasn't till 1957 that the wheat actually grew tall enough to be reaped. She did well to leave that job.
