The booklet pane of 20 features 2007 traditional Christmas stamps. The image 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. Luini 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, which were made famous by Luini. A Madonna has appeared on a U.S. Christmas stamp almost every year since 1966.
