EUROPA 2003 - Poster Art 8.5.2003

This 90c stamp was painted by the famous Swiss posterist Donald Brun in Basel in 1943. Switzerland used this lovely painting entitled “Vergissmargglinit” for its EUROPA series of stamps in 2003. The theme for EUROPA stamps in 2003 was “Poster Art”. If you observe carefully, you will see that the petals on the flowers are in fact postage stams. The cover has a mail box depicted on it too. Very appropriate for a stamp themed issue.
Thank you Maria.
