The Afternoon by artist David Shillingford Paynter (1935)

David Shillingford Paynter  (1900–1975), was an internationally renowned Sri Lankan painter. He was a pioneer creator of a Sri Lankan idiom in what was essentially a Western art form. In this regard his arguably most celebrated work is the set of murals in the Chapel of Trinity College, Kandy. The Sri Lanka Philatelic Bureau commemorated Christmas in 1996 with two stamps featuring the murals from the Trinity Chapel.
