Stamp, in form of a gutter pair shows, graphic representation of a portrait of Albert Einstein taken by ARTHUR SASSE (1908 – 1975), American photojournalist working for United Press International. Sasse took it somewhat by chance, in 1951, after a birthday party for Einstein at Princeton University. At the end of the party, as the scientist escorted one of the professor women to the car, impatient with the photographers' constant assistance, he turned to them and stuck his tongue out.
