Save over 50% on this 16th Century Artist's Most Famous Work!
Almost 500 years after his death, Antonio Correggio remains one of the most celebrated painters of the Italian Renaissance. This large 7” x 9½” commemorative sheet is a perfect miniature recreation of the artist's famed Madonna and Child and includes four stamps illustrating the story of Jesus' birth plus the first day of issue cancellation.
Issued by North Korea in 1983, it is ironic that a nation with an official policy where religion is discouraged and less than 2% of the population is Christian would release stamps with a decidedly Christian theme. But in the late 1970s and early 1980s North Korea, under the leadership of founding President Kim Il-sung, was attempting to establish an independent foreign policy and the stamps from this era reflect more international themes including British royalty and events in Western nations. With the current political climate it is unlikely we will ever see another postal issue from North Korea celebrating the birth of Christ!
