|Pond (1912) by Stanislav Zhukovsky|
Zhukovsky was born in Yendrikovtsy, Grodno Province of the then Russian Empire, now it is Belarus. A collection of his "Russian Period" works are on display at the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus in Minsk. They had their own troubles with the Nazis as large parts of the collection were plundered and disappeared during WW2 however, as they put it, they have risen from the ashes and the present day collection continues to grow. Apart from its little museum stamp the card came with
the 2013 History of National Communication stamp. The stamp features a dove symbolising the "elements of protection" and the other pieces featured in the design are philatelic items from the collection of Lev L. Kolosov .
The stamp is one of series started in 2011 by the Communications Administrators, members of the RCC (Regional Commonwealth in the field of Communication), who signed an agreement on issuing postage stamps on a RCC theme. The stamps display the RCC emblem. Its aim is to develop cultural, social and economic cooperation between states and to consolidate friendship between their people. For the first issue in 2011 they celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the RCC, then in 2012 Belarus National Clothes.
