Grand Canyon Stamp

Quality paintings have been thin on the ground this week. I've posted only one other: CLICK. This magnificent painting Grand Canyon (1912) is by Thomas Moran, born in England, who moved to the USA and became one of the Hudson River School artists. This is one of four Hudson River School paintings chosen by the US Postal Service to be featured in the 12th issue of the American Treasures series, on sale from 21 August. CLICK to see a larger picture. To view the original painting, you need to visit The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri (CLICK). Admission is free. N.B. avoid Ferguson en route!
