Archak Fetvajian (1866-1942) was an authority on Armenian Architecture. He documented the ruins of Ani, and produced thousands of sketches and watercolor paintings around the turn of the century. His works have been exhibited at the Louvre and at London's Victoria and Albert Museum. Fetvedjian also designed the currency and postage stamps for the first Republic of Armenia (1919-1921). He died before his dream of having his work published came true. His passion for Armenian Architecture was passed down to his Godchild Dr. Lucy Der Manuelian, a specialist in the field at Tufts University.

Bolshevik Army

The Republic of Armenia fell to a Bolshevik army in 1921 before the stamps could be put in circulation.
