Monaco:Stamp on Theophile Gautier

\"\"Born in Tarbes in 1811, Théophile Gautier was three years old when his family moved to Paris. He published “Poésies,” his first collection of poems, in 1830. In 1835, in the preface to his novel “Mademoiselle de Maupin”, Gautier protested with vigour and humour against the idealistic excesses of romanticism. He wrote several scenarios of ballets, the most famous of which, “Giselle”, is represented on the stamp behind the character of “Capitaine Fracasse” extracted of the eponymous novel published by Gautier in 1863.
