The 2007 traditional Christmas stamp was reproduced from The Madonna of the Carnation, a painting by Bernardino Luini (circa 1480-1532). Luini was a student of Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, and his work is so similar to his teacher's that some of his art was originally credited to da Vinci. He is well known for his frescoes (paintings on plaster), which decorate many churches in and around Milan. The Madonna wears the "Luinesque" half-smile with downcast eyes, made famous by Luini. The Madonna has appeared on a U.S. Christmas stamp almost every year since 1966.
