HOMMAGE' A JOHANN MOTHERLAND

HOMMAGE' A JOHANN MOTHERLAND

Greetings!!! I am Higgins. Here are some stamps I made from some reproductions from a catalogue from the show at the MoMa that my friend, Nat, who lives upstairs, brought over with a ticket to go there and see these eclectic Creativitys. But I made these stamps instead and hope to go see the show.

As a Portrait Painter I thought Richter pretty good and so made them German stamps, as he called them, "Philosophers, Composers, Writers, & Scientists.

For this show of yours I have done an 'OVERPRINT' on these stamps.

Traditionally when one country over-runs another, but doesn't have money to print stamps, they usually use the old stamps but with their own stuff on top...

I do not know why the Germans refer to their country as the FATHERLAND

Nor do I understand why the Russians call the homeland MOTHERLAND.
