In 1940 the US Post Office issued a set of 35 Commemorative Stamps, over the course of approximately ten months, commemorating America's famous authors, poets, educators, scientists, composers, artists and inventors. One of the famous artists included in the series was American-born British-based artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler, whose Commemorative Stamp is shown separately below:
