Set of 8 art masterpiece designs from 1974 commemorating the Universal Postal Union.
The block of eight designs printed on the same sheet depicted the theme of writing and reading letters. The stamps marked the centennial year of the Universal Postal Union.

You will receive 1 of each stamp: Francisco Goya "Don Antonio Noriega", Raphael "School of Athens", Katsushika Hokusai "Five Feminine Virtues", John Peto "Old Scraps", Jean-Etienne Liotard "The Lovely Reader", Gerard Terborch "Lady Writing Letter", Jean-Baptiste Chardin "Inkwell & Quill", Thomas Gainsborough "Mrs. John Douglas" .

The phrase “Letters mingle souls,” a quotation from a poem by John Donne, appears on every second stamp.
