The National Institute of Health Library recently held a symposium about sickle cell disease.
Here’s the display they did in the library showing the original stamp art. The tiny oil painting is framed in the lower left of the glass case.
The original oil painting is no bigger than a postcard. There’s a reason that the Post Office asks artists to paint stamp art that small. If you let an artist do a large painting, they’ll most likely put in lots of detail that will become lost when the art is reduced.
