|| Adoration of the Child
|| First Day Cover - 1 October 1968
|... 2½c (155a)|
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.
