Canada Post Corporation's 1989 Christmas stamps feature winter landscapes by four Canadian painters. "Bend in the Gosselin River, Arthabaska" (c. 1906), painted by popular Quebec artist Marc-Aurèle de Foy Suzor-Coté, is reproduced on the 38-cent domestic rate stamp. From the collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the oil-on-canvas shows Suzor-Coté's subtle use of colour, disciplined style, and affection for his native countryside. This stamp will also be available in convenient packs of 10 stamps. Ottawa's David Nethercott and Viviane Warburton developed the design concepts for these four stamps showing Canadian winter landscapes. Through their use of decorative borders and a seasonal message, the stamps suggest the look of elegant Christmas cards. Nethercott and Warburton's past works for Canada Post Corporation include the typographical design for the Dogs of Canada stamps and the design of the Frances Ann Hopkins stamp. Both issues appeared in 1988.
