This hand stretched canvas print is of 3 cent United States postage stamp from 1936 commemorating Susan Brownell Anthony, a leader in the early women's rights movements, introducing women's suffrage to the United States. She cofounded the Women's Temperance Movement and the women's rights journal The Revolution. She travelled the world and gave roughly 100 speeches a year. She was arrested for voting in the 1872 Presidential Election and her trial went to the Supreme Court. She was not allowed to speak, was found guilty before the trail began and fined $100. She never paid it. After the trail her audience was larger than ever. Women were given the right to vote 14 years after her death in 1906 with the passing of the 19th Amendment.

The face of this canvas measures 9 x 7.5 inches (22.9 x 19.1 cm). It is from a series of 20 pieces that I will make in this size. Larger sizes are available. If you don't see any among my other Etsy listings please inquire.

I wanted to enjoy stamp artwork without a magnifying glass, without trapping these great little pieces of art in rarely seen binders. I started to blow them up and thought of Past Postage. Vintage postage stamps, meticulously scanned, cleaned, enlarged and printed on a premium archival canvas using professional equipment. The canvas is given a protective UV coating and stretched and stapled over handmade wooden frames of kiln dried poplar. Smaller pieces like this one are stretched over a half inch thick piece of high quality birch ply. The perforations of the stamps are gallery wrapped unto the sides of the frame, making additional framing unnecessary. All artwork comes securely packaged and ready to hang. This is all done under one roof by one person.

Thank you for visiting - and if you like this piece I have many more in my store.
