Monaco Issued Stamp on Olympia

\"\"Painted by Edouard Manet in 1863, Olympia was inspired by Titian\’s Venus of Urbino but deviates from the academic canon in its style. At the time, Olympia shocked in many way: both the provocative attitude of the woman and the realismof the subject engendered controversy. In painting reality as he saw it, Manet created what some consider the first modern painting. In that way, Manet was a pivotal figure in the transition from realism to impressionism.Layout: Creaphil Printing process: Offset Size of the stamp: 52 x 40.85 mm horizontal Quantity of issue: 60 000 stamps Sheet of 6 stamps with illuminations
