A Touch of Nostalgia
Winslow Homer Classic Portrait oil on canvas "Boys in a Pasture" (1874).
This stamp will be dedicated on August 13, 2010 in Richmond, VA, during American Philatelic Society Stamp Show 2010. This portrait will also be featured as the new 44cent postage stamp.
It is Homer's third time being honored on a U.S. postage stamp. In 1962 it was Homer's "Breezing Up", issuing a 4cent stamp, and in 1998 "The Fog Warning" he was featured in a stamp series.
