Modern Art in America Theme of New U.S. Stamps

First Day of Issue: March 7, 2013 - United States

The United States has issued a set of twelve new postage stamps celebrating Modern Art in America.

In celebration of the triumph of modern art in America, the U.S. Postal Service commemorates 12 important modern artists and their works, 100 years after the groundbreaking Armory Show opened in New York in 1913. The masterpieces reproduced in the stamp art were created between 1912 and 1931.

The stamp sheet also includes a quote by Marcel Duchamp and verso text that identifies each work of art and briefly tells something about each artist.
