Some update about Eric(s) on stamps

To start this new week, I’d like to share with you my last findings related to my collection about famous Eric(s) on stamps. I found recently two stamps from Austria. The first one has been issued in 1971 and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Erich von Tschermark-Seysenegg, an Austrian agronomist known to have rediscover the work of George Mendel around the laws of inheritance.
The second one commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Eric Korngold, an Austrian composer who has written several operas and film music.The stamp does not actually show Eric Korngold, it illustrates a scene of one of his opera The dead city (Die tote Stadt).
