Postcard from Denmark no. 2
A great postcard, sent on 22 March 2009, showing a night view of Copenhagen (Nyhavn) with a stamp showing another night view, in another, possibly imaginary, city.
The large 8.25 DKK stamp was issued on 6 June 2007 along with another stamp presenting the contemporary Danish art. The painting called Trionfale (2007) is by Finnish-born artist Seppo Mattinen (1930-), who moved from Denmark to Italy where he got inspired by the local Via Trionfale to create this atmospheric piece of art. I just love this stamp.
