Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904) had the longest career and possibly the most varied body of work of any American painter of the nineteenth century. Heade's love of nature led him to specialize in sea coast and marsh landscapes and floral still lifes. This stamp is the fourth issue of the American Treasures Series.
