Bill Bond's original painting of Owney, created for the Owney commemorative postage stamp, is accompanied by 6 sketches of Owney in various poses that Bond created as he developed his final portrait. As background for his stamp art, Bond selected 5 tags from the many Owney acquired on his travels; these tags are also on view.
