1 votedvote

Magyar Posta is commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of a painter Miklos Barabas by issuing a special stamp.

The stamp features Barabas's Self-Portrait (1841) while on the first day cover there is a detail of his painting Venice at Dusk (1834). Both works are prized pieces in the collection of the Hungarian National Gallery.

The design of the special postmark is a composition of the indispensable tools of an artist, a palette and brushes, surrounded by a laurel wreath.
