#304 Ukraine...Thanks Sulyma!

This miniature sheet was issued in Mar,2010 commemorating 200 Birth Anniv. of Taras Shevchenko.

Taras Shevchenko (1814–1861) was a Ukrainian poet, artist and humanist. His literary heritage is regarded to be the foundation of modern Ukrainian literature and, to a large extent, the modern Ukrainian language. Shevchenko also wrote in Russian and left many masterpieces as a painter and an illustrator.

The 2 UAH stamp shows Self-portrait as a soldier, 1847.
