44 cent Abstract Expressionist Stamps at Post Office!

Thumbs Up!

The USPS just introduced a set of 44 cent Abstract Expressionist Stamps last week in ten designs, including The Phillips Collection’s Willem de Kooning painting, Asheville (1948). The stamps on the sheet have been arranged to suggest a wall hang. You can get them at your local post office.
