Norway, 1995 UN commemorative. Interesting that the legend says "FOR FRED", which means "FOR PEACE" in Norwegian, and not what it looks like in English.  :D

Nations united for Fred could be interesting too, especially with the little dancers in the back ... but Trygve Lie does not look like Fred Astaire at all. ;D

This is an Italian collector coin dedicated to Andrea Mantegna (500th anniversary of his death, 2006). It shows the Dance of the Muses from Mantegna's painting Parnassus. The upper part of that painting, by the way, was used for San Marino's Mantegna coin, issued in the same year.

Wilhelm Heinrich Otto Dix (2 December 1891 25 July 1969) was a German painter and printmaker, noted for his ruthless and harshly realistic depictions of Weimar society and the brutality of war. Along with George Grosz, he is widely considered one of the most important artists of the Neue Sachlichkeit.
