The 1968 Christmas stamp features the central detail from 'Adoration of the Child' by Gherardo van Honthorst. "Adoration of the Shepherds" is printed on the stamp but this is not the correct title of this work. 'Adoration by the Shepherds' is actually a different but similar painting by this artist.
