This artwork by James Barkley represents the second of three depictions of Mount McKinley on U.S. postage, all of which reflect changes in printing that allowed for a broader range of artistic approaches. The 1937 stamp depicting Mount McKinley included a monochromatic engraving; the 1972 stamp was done in acrylic on board and a 2001 stamp featured a breathtaking color photograph.
