#002 Poland...Thanks Andrej!
These three superb FDCs was sent to me by Andrej, Thank you very much.
The stamps were issued on 11/20/2009,showing reproductions of famous paintings stolen from Poland during WW II.The move is part of a campaign to recover some of Poland’s art treasurers. The series, “Lost Masterpieces” includes reproductions of Jesus Collapses Under the Cross by Peter Paul Rubens and Joseph Telling his Dreams by Rembrandt. The stamps were designed by Kazimierz Bulik. “The collection shows that Polish museums are still searching for stolen art pieces,” says Bulik, adding that Poczta Polska hopes to reach people who might know something about the lost paintings.
The other stamp is a definitive of City Landmark series issued in 2002, showing St.Adalbert's Coffin in Gniezno.
