U.S. #1064 was issued in conjunction with the Sesquicentennial Celebration of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. The stamp pictures Charles Wilson Peale’s self-portrait, “The Artist in His Museum.” Many of the museum’s exhibits were collected by Peale, and he includes some of them in his painting. The stamp features several, like a wild turkey ready to be preserved. The stamp also shows a great mastodon bone, in honor of one of Peale’s greatest achievements – the rebuilding of a mastodon’s skeleton.
 
The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts 
The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts was founded in 1805 by painter and scientist Charles Wilson Peale (1741-1827), sculptor William Rush, and other leading business leaders in 1805. It is the oldest art museum and school in the nation. The museum is world famous for its collection of 18th-, 19th-, and 20th-century American paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. The Academy’s museum building was opened in 1876. It was designed by the American architects Frank Furness and George Hewitt. The building, which is a National Historic Landmark, was restored in 1976.
