USA: The Carry by Andrew Wyeth with matching stamp

I always love to see postcards with matching stamps, and this is one of them. This is painting The Carry, by Andrew Wyeth. He was a visual artist, primarily a realist painter, working predominantly in a regionalist style. He was one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century. This year is 100 years from his birth, and USPS issued a mini sheet with 12 stamps on 12th July. Of course, this painting is also featured on mini sheet.

On back of the postcard you can see two stamps from mentioned set, a one stamp from set Disney Villains, issued on 15.07.2017. This is first time i saw this interesting two-colored cancellation from USA. It reminds me on cancellations from Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. Hand cancellation is rare in USA, most of mail is cancelled by machine.

Thank you Charlotte!
