Columbus Soliciting the Aid of Isabella

     In this scene Columbus is explaining to Isabella his plan to sail to the Indies, hoping for her financial support for the expedition.  On the table lies a map which he used to make his plans clear. The design for the stamp is based on a painting by Vaczlav Van Brozik which was deaccessioned from the Metropolitan Museum and now hangs in the Hotel Richelieu in Murray Bay, Canada.
