Description[edit]

This stamp was issued to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Aland Art Museum. The stamp motif was chosen through a public vote between seven pre-selected works of art from the museum collection. A vote organized in the spring of 2012 allowed voters to choose between seven works of art by Henrik Nylund, Guy Frisk, Sigrid Granfelt, Robert Hancock, Hildur Stenbäck, Ture Bengtz and Johan Scott. An expert group had selected the seven works of art that are all part of the art museum collection.
