Easter 2022 -Croatia – Sheetlet

This year’s Easter stamp of the Croatian Post features a painting of the Calvary by an unknown painter from the 18th century. Today it is housed in the Franciscan monastery in Čakovec, and it originates from the former Pauline monastery of St. Helena near Čakovec. A number of famous painters worked in the Pauline Order, but, as Mirjana Repanić Braun says, there is no painting among their works in continental Croatia comparable to this one: it probably came from abroad.
