Vatican:Easter 2020 Stamp

The Vatican is issuing a special postage stamp for Easter this year featuring “street art” from Rome. The image on the 1.15 euro stamp dedicated to Easter 2020 is a graffiti rendition of “The Ascension,” by Heinrich Hofmann (1824-1911). The “street art” is located near Rome’s Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II. Born in Darmstadt, Germany, Hofmann spent time in Rome and is known for many paintings of the life of Jesus, especially “Christ in Gethsemane.”
