Exhibition of stamps of the Principality of Liechtenstein on view at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art
The exhibition comprises 28 series of postage stamps of Liechtenstein issued at different periods in the past (the oldest stamp on display dates back to 1937).
MOSCOW.- The Moscow Museum of Modern Art and the Liechtenstein National Museum present the exhibition “Stamps of the Principality of Liechtenstein: History of a Project.” The exhibition is part of the festivities marking the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Russian Federation and the Principality of Liechtenstein.

The exhibition comprises 28 series of postage stamps of Liechtenstein issued at different periods in the past (the oldest stamp on display dates back to 1937). The postage stamp series of the postal service of Liechtenstein “in the wake of A. V. Suvorov in Switzerland” and the stamps printed especially for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The year 2012 marked the 100th anniversary of Liechtenstein’s first postage stamp. the festivities kicked off by the unveiling of the exhibition “100 Years of the Postage Stamps of Liechtenstein 1912-2012” held in a local museum of the postal service. The exhibits traveled to Russia as “The Postage Stamps and their Prototypes”, an exhibition held in the Orenburg Regional Museum of Fine Arts from August to October of 2013. The exhibits were also displayed on the venue of the Sverdlovski Regional Studies Museum later in November that year and December of 2013.

The exhibition consists of three parts. part one, the historical one, enables the spectator to take a closer look at the development of the postal system of Liechtenstein. part two includes a 10-stamp series of the postage stamps of the Liechtenstein postal service titled “In the Wake of A. V. Suvorov in Switzerland”. It was issued in 2014 by the Philatelic Service of Liechtenstein to commemorate the 215th anniversary of the march of the Russian troops under General Suvorov through the Alps. The stamps bear images of 10 paintings by the artist Alex Doll. Part three features a postage stamp issued by the Postal Service of Liechtenstein to mark the 22nd Winter Olympics in Sochi. The stamp is based on the sketches of Alex Doll and Natalia Brovko who won the Sochi Olympics competition for the best design of the indication of the postage. The issue was printed by a thermographic imaging method using paint in which the tiniest granite chipplings from the mountain mass Krasnaya Polyana had been added. thus, every stamp contains a “little bit of Sochi.”

Alex Doll was born in 1990 in Russia. he lives and works in Moscow and Bern. He has been a member of the Russian Union of Artists and honorary member of the Russian Academy of Arts since 2013. He is a laureate of the competition “Avant-Garde Painting” under the Kazakh Week of Arts in Astana, 2010. Doll is also a laureate of the 7th International Competition of Young Artists under the 10th International Festival of Fine Art “Moscow is the City of Peace”, Moscow, 2012. The Russo-Swiss cultural project “Swiss Vision” was carried out in Russia in 2012 and 2013. In the frame of the above, “Swiss Vision”, the solo exhibitions of A. Doll, were held in Orenburg, in Krasny Most Gallery in the city of Vologda, as well as in Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Salekhard. In 2012, the works of A. Doll were part of the international exhibition of young artists at the central house of artists in Moscow. The same year saw his works exhibited in Palazzo Bembo in Venice. The event was organized with participation of Beyeler Collection Basel Gallery. Currently exhibitions of A. Doll are being held in Locarno and in the Saint Gotthard National Museum (airolo).
